This first one was silly & random. I was in Dollar Tree to buy gift boxes and hey! There's YARN here! Bernat Haven to be exact, in an assortment of baby pastels.
Ta Da! Nice blanket to add to the charity pile for this year.

Next is the one I made for my husband for Christmas. Finally I have hit upon a craft where he has said "when are you going to make one for me?" Cheesy joy!
I Love This Yarn (Hobby Lobby house brand) in navy & cranberry. I lost the label for the "sock monkey" stripe. All acrylic.

Yes, he really likes it. I had to grab it off the couch to photograph as it's been very grey & wet since I finished it.

Nice blankets! How long did it take you to crochet those?!?! I love the idea of a crocheted blanket, but man what a labor of love! Smiley

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!

Both very cute blankets!  I like the one that you made for your husband.  I made one for my fiancee for Christmas this year also and he loved it.  Very similar colors.  Good job! Grin

How long did that take?  I started an afghan for my son almost 4 years ago and am only about half way done (it's not nearly as big as yours).  I get a little bored with the same project after a while  Roll Eyes

I CIP in public quite frequently. I suppose I'm a faster crocheter that your average noob, but I've been sewing for years so I'm used to getting things done.

The one for my husband took about 5 weeks. I have a 15- 30 minute window every morning & every afternoon in dropping off & picking up my kids at school & pre-school. I'd guess 1/3 of the total blanket was done in those little snippets of time. The rest was Sunday School (really), and movies & tv at home in the evenings. I was really focused on finishing it before Christmas. Lots of Dirty Jobs & Alton Brown accompanied the making of this blanket.

The baby blanket I started on Christmas because all of a sudden I didn't have a project going.
