Long time, no write. I hope this is going to change. Some pesky health issues made keeping up with my blogging all but impossible. Finally I am feeling a bit better.

I did manage to finish the crochet baby blanket that my MIL had started before she passed away.

As I said, it has been a time since I crocheted and the pattern was all in her head. I kept with the pattern blocks as she had them. The Skipper has a blanket crocheted by her and I looked to that for guidance on how to stitch the blocks together. It seems as though she liked to crochet blocks together using single crochet. Wanting this blanket to be very much still hers and not mine, I connected the baby blanket blocks in like manner.

I also looked at the border on The Skippers blanket but realized I couldn’t reproduce it on the baby blanket as it would not work. While I am pretty sure my MIL’s border would have been more fancy, I decided to make the border out of single crochet. I felt this plain border would keep the emphasis on the blocks she had finished, thereby keeping the blanket as her creation.

All are happy with the blanket.
