Project finished!

A friend of mine at work is having a baby, and asked me to make a blanket for her. Since she loves Tweety from Loony Tunes, she asked specifically to make her one Tweety yellow, with light pink for trim, as she's having a girl.

So, I put on my RGB eps, and went to town...and this is what came out of my industriousness:

Crocheted Blanket

It's done entirely in double crochet, except for the edging, which is a row of single crochet, followed by a row of double crochet, and finished with a row of crab stitch (reverse single crochet).

I was pleased that it came out so nicely. My friend loved it. She couldn't wait to get it home and show it off.

My next project is a granny throw for the other pregnant friend at work. Wish me luck, I've never tried a granny pattern before.

Edit: Why can't I get pictures to work on this darn thing? The URL is correct...

It looks good. The yellow and pink go well together; I wasn't sure what to expect. :-D

To embed Flick photos, you have to click on "All Sizes" right above the photo, then pick the size you want, and then copy/paste the embed code that's below the pic. Yay!

*hugs back* Is gud tiemz! Yeah, the colors worked great! It was just the right shade of each, or something. Crochet is a mystery to me, but I like the look of the fabric in this. It's not super dense like some crochet I've seen. (Does not know from crochet.)

Nugatory, that's real nice. Tell us which colors you used, not all yellows nore certainly all pinks are the same.

Rat, we'll get you doing irish lace roses. Got any crochet cotton?

No, and I'm terrified of crochet! :-D Sounds like I have a new craft to learn. Black_Rider crochets nicely, but she's rarely online over here.

Ah, okay. That makes sense. I oughta learn about crochet, it comes up a lot as an edging and finishing technique for knitting. The big shawl I'm doing requires a chain crochet bind-off, oh noes!

Quite nice! Makes me feel a bit guilty about the crochet shawl I'm not making any progress on.

Yeah, no kidding. :-p And the pattern repeat is 24 stitches long at this point, so it'd be write write write hook hook hook write write write . . .
