Progress with Crochet Lap Blanket

Friday, February 26, 2016

Hi friends.  I just wanted to update you on the crochet lap blanket that I've been working on for the winter.  In case you missed the post I did of this lap blanket I'm making, and the details for the yarn, and pattern, you can click HERE.



Shown below is how much progress I've made on the blanket.


I'm more that half way finished crocheting this blanket, and I just need to finish a small section of it.  It will be donated to our annual crochet sale that we will have at my church in the fall.  

I will be so happy to have this lap blanket all finished and then I'll be on to more crochet projects of course.

Do you have any fun, and crafty projects that you are working on right now?

Wishing you all a nice weekend and see on Monday for Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

Thanks everyone and enjoy!

Julie

  17. It is beàutiful Julie and so even! You are an accomplished crochet blanket maker!
    Now if we lived nearby maybe you could teach me?!
    My mother did such beautiful work, even into her 80s when she made me an exquisite tablecloth with very fine cotton.
    Wishing you a happy week.

  18. OH Julie, the blanket is turning out just beautiful. I love the bands of color in it. I am working on some sewing projects and some granny squares, that I decided to do for a blanket to donate.
    Happy Sunday!

  33. Julie, your blanket looks lovely. I adore anything that is crocheted. The one big thing I am working on at the moment is getting our rooms painted and purging. I'll be glad when it's finished! Thank you for sharing today and have a lovely day.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
