Crochet Heirloom Baby Blanket


I've started a new heirloom baby blanket that I plan on donating to our dear friends who are trying to raise money to adopt three orphan siblings from the Ukraine. When it's finished it will be available on their silent auction.


I'm always surprised at how much I enjoy crochet when I return to it! It's so fast and satisfying!


I'm using a 100% mercerized sport weight cotton yarn by Jaeger called Siena that was in my stash. I'm adjusting this pattern, using the main motifs as a smaller center section, then I'll add a wide border to finish.

I woke up early this morning with my fingers itching to keep working on it. That's a good sign that this project will get done quickly!
