Hi everyone!! OMG I hadn't been on here in FOREVER!! Spent an hour looking at all the gorgeous starghans I've missed! This thread is such a favorite!
I just wanted to share my funny starghan story ... so I made one for my son while I was pregnant, and then my mom made like 73 (non-star) blankies for him, too, so when he was born I just didn't even think he would like the starghan, but one night all the other blankies were in the laundry so I grabbed the starghan and somehow it became a routine to give him THAT blanket to sleep.
Anywho, last week at daycare they told me he was just NOT sleeping, he was fighting naps, they were having a rough time. I couldn't believe it since he's such a good sleeper at home. Well I sent him to daycare with the starghan the next day and ... LO AND BEHOLD! He slept like an angel.
So I had to run out and find TLC Amore (couldn't find the green) and I made him an extra starghan IN ONE WEEKEND!! OMG needless to say I actually had shoulder cramps from the speed hooking!! I managed to finish it during The Oscars ... yes, I spent 3 hours straight watching the TV and crocheting like a crazy woman.
Now he has his "home starghan" and his "daycare starghan" and all is well with the world. Who'da thunk it would have such power?? Haha!
To all you gals struggling with the first rows, DON'T GIVE UP, use the picture tutorial, and hang in there ... once you get it, once you make one, the next one will be SO easy, you'll be making a whole bunch of them. This last one was my 4th and I didn't even need the pattern anymore, it was that easy!
You can do it!!
P.S. - I don't have a picture of the daycare one since it was such short notice, sorry!
