1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Material for baby blanket on: November 08, 2015 03:03:21 AM
I want to make a rag quilt for my new baby niece. I can't decide whether it's better to use flannel or fleece, or some combination of the two. I want it to be as soft as possible, but I also don't want it to be too hot  if the room she's in is heated.
What do you recommend?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting new cover for torn couch on: September 05, 2012 03:45:21 AM
The couch in our living room is about 20 years old, and the fabric covering it is already all torn. Even more so, now that there are three little grandchildren wreaking havoc everytime they come around.

I want to crochet new covers for the cushions, but I can't quite decide what the best direction is to go. Granny squares? Or is that too risky, because the tears might still be visible from underneath? Also, what yarn should I use? Something soft? And color?

Anyhow, any advice or suggestions would be wonderful. Thank you!

I like them a lot. What pattern did you use?
[I probably won't have time to make one before the winter here ends, but for next year, at least...]

My main problem with imagining what a certain yarn will look like in the finished project is with yarn that changes colors. I love things that kind of fade between one color and the next, but I can't stand when every stitch [or less!] is a different color.

Might you have any tips on being able to tell such a thing just by looking at the yarn, and not sneaking a test-swatch behind the shop-owner's back? Wink
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Dimensions for a baby blanket on: September 07, 2011 02:51:17 AM
Hey all,

I'm crocheting a baby blanket for my newborn niece, and I don't really know what the ideal size for it is. The width is about 1'7'', and I can technically continue how ever much I want to reach the right length.

The baby girl I'm making this for is currently about two and a half weeks old, and pretty small, but I want the blanket to be good for another good while.

What would you say are the best dimensions for this project?


[I'll try to add a picture of the blanket in progress when I get home.]

So incredibly beautiful.
Makes me want to take out a sewing machine and just sew and sew and sew.

I'm using this pattern for a blue-colored blanket. It was going to be a wedding present for my brother and sister-in-law, but two years later - it's probably going to be for their baby-to-be. That way it can be smaller too.

Anyhow, your blanket it really pretty!

I love the first one too. It's stunning, and if I wasn't at work [and practically broke], I would go out this second to find that kind of yarn. The colors, the texture and the stitches are all amazing.

[I also love McLeod's Daughters!]

These are amazing, seriously.
The colors are beautiful and the stitch is so cool!
I might have to try that out at some point... Smiley
