Who says you can't combine knitting and crocheting in one project... NOT ME!!!
With my severe allergic reaction to meds and ending up in Hospital and with my hands swollen twice their normal size and hives all over body, It kinda put me outta commission for a FEW days and so I fell very far behind in my first attempt at a fully knitted blanket. So push came to shove... I had to crochet them together, I just didn't have any more time to knit it all together.
Well the story behind this blanket is that my grandson (3yrs today, Jan 28) is totally yarn obsessed.. seriously yarn obsessed. Every time I would finish one of my knitted dishcloths or get some in a puffy they would disappear and later turn up in the toys at the end of the day... soooo I decided to knit up some dishcloths in Peaches & Creme and make him a blanket. He fell in love with the pink variegated dishcloth from Beth Z so it is also in his blanket (we tore it away from him a few days before) and most of the squares are from the knitting book... Dishcloths from the Heart, by Leisure Arts (again ... thank you Beth Z). There are a couple (the dark blue"M", orange ABC's and the the red star) from the net.
I bordered each square with sc's in White and Gumdrops (P&C), then each panel again in white and then the entire thing in White with a 'shellish' border in Gumdrops again. It turned out very very cute and he is napping with it as we speak!
You can see a couple goofs... but oh well, (don't hold it against me) it was made with MUCH LOVE!
