The Chocolate Yarn Sucking Blanket is finished!!!!! I am so excited I can't even tell you. I don't think I am really a blanket kind of gal. I mean I love the idea of them, and they are so cozy, it is just that my attention span isn't that great.
I yearn to make something else while I am crocheting or knitting a blanket. I have to force myself into completing it.
The pattern is a simple treble crochet shell pattern. The border is 4 rows of treble crochet and the first and last seven stitches of each row are treble crochet. Easy-peasy, just a bit boring. I think my next blanket will be colorful, maybe that will help.
The yarn used on this blanket is Lion Brand Yarn Nature's Choice Organic Cotton in walnut. I ended up using about 20 skeins on a size K crochet hook. Each skein has 103 yards, not much yardage for approximately the $8.00 selling prices, but with the use of coupons averaging 40 to 50% off it worked out okay.
My youngest son loves it even though he thinks it is a bit short at 69 inches in length. It is approximately 60 inches wide, a nice blanket size for him. I think this is finished project number 41 for me but to be honest it has been so long since I finished a project I can't remember.
Hope you are all having a great Monday.
