Well, I started something with my friends, someone gets married, they get a blanket, someone has a baby they get a blanket... etc
well here is the latest blanket crocheted for my friend Jill and her little girl Grace.
Thanks for looking!

This is lovely Cassie! Gorgeous colors and your knitting is so even. I have been lucky in that sense too, my friends always give my DILs a blanket when one of my grandchildren are born. It is a great gift!

What a lovely and thoughtful way to mark a special occasion. Do you use traditional patterns or make your own? This looks so soft and cozy. Beautiful work Cassie.:clap:
Hmmmm....winter is coming....:rolleyes:

Lovely! Nice colors and I like the uneven width of the 'stripes.'

What fortunate friends (and babies) to have such a lovely crochet blanket! Nicely done!!:clap:
Cassie, Well done! Can I be your friend? Let's see...I'm too old to have a baby...I'm already married. How about when I'm ready to go to the rest home?

Lovely Ripple Afgan, I do enjoy crochet. I made a king size bed cover using crochet hook and the Aran knit pattern, but I wouldn't attempt a ripple!

Thank you everyone for all the compliments :) The patterns for my ripple blankets come from a slight obession of numbers. I stagger them out in numerical order or do multiples of a number and the next one I'd like to try one with prime numbers. I honestly don't know if any of the patterns have names - I just like to play :)
Sher, when you're in the home, I'll crochet a shawl to keep you warm :wink:
Fookie, I actually tried making a queen-sized ripple bedspread and I forgot about the way the pattern makes the blanket get narrow. I will finish it, but it'll be more of a twin sized blanket.
Oh yes, I have a picture with the baby on the blanket, I'll have to scan it in, she is TOO cute!!
YEAH! :clap: :clap: :clap:

cassie, what a lovely baby blanket!! it'll be a long time before i attempt that kind of crochet project, yowza! have you ever considered doing one using the fibonacci series? i used it once to create a border on one of my wall hanging quilts (that i never finished - sigh...), and it's really striking.
here's a link to more than you probably want to know about the Fibonacci number (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number)
so, how many blankets have you given away so far? you sure are ambitious - and generous! beautiful work! :clap:
