I Won...and a New Blanket

I entered a give-a-way over on Birchberry Farms and found out last week that I won! I received some of her Sweet Annie lotion and a bar of Rosemary soap.
They both smell awesome! Thank you so much Renee.

This weekend I frogged the baby blanket I told you about... just decided there was no salvaging it, so I started over. I am now using a pattern that I did when I first learned to crochet, it is called Lisa's Granny Square and can be found here.  Rather than making squares, I make one big blanket; it works up fast and is a really easy pattern. Here's what I've gotten done so far:

It's kind of hard to see the pattern with the variegated yarn, but it is working up quite nicely. 

I hope everyone had a nice weekend... the weather here was absolutely gorgeous, hubby and I planted some flowers yesterday. I'll take pictures later today so you can see them.  Enjoy your Monday!


  1. Oh, I like the way it looks, very pretty. And congratulations on winning that yummy lotion and soap. I just love the homemade kind.

  2. I love making those big grannies where you just keep going 'round and 'round (in a square)! :) Sorry you had to frog your other one, but this one looks really nice. Congrats on winning the soap and lotion!

  3. Congratulations on winning the giveaway. The soap and lotion sound fantastic.
    Sorry you had to frog the blanket, but only you know best. I'm sure the new one will come out great and will be very much appreciated.
    Have a lovely day,
    Doris :-)

  4. Wow! I think this looks really good. I think the yarn is working out really well! Lets hope you dont change your mind again.
    We all go through it so don't worry.
    Hugs and Love Suex
