I started on this baby blanket from a free pattern. It is my first pattern where are the stitches aren’t the same throughout.
It has a puff stitch which is new for me and driving me insane, crossed over double crochet stitches, and front and back post double crochet.
I’m enjoying making it even though I keep having to redo rows repeatedly. I’m not sure what is going on since I count stitches and they’re correct but then when I do the next row it isn’t right. I’m clearly doing something wrong but I usually manage to fix it.
My issue is my kids think my yarn is a good pretend bowl of water.
Yes, that is One-eyed Willy holding my yarn. He was the perfect size for the skein of yarn. That is my 3 year old stirring the “water” with one of her toys. She got the idea from my 5 year old.
I’m not impressed.
My kids are lucky they’re so cute and I love them with all my heart.
I also ended up getting a new hook for this blanket. I was getting thumb cramps and need one with a handle. I wish I had gotten hooks like this sooner. I didn’t realize the difference it would make!
