It’s an Idyllic Day!

Good afternoon! I have been crocheting like crazy for new babies that are joining my family and friends. I am so excited about how this little boy blanket turned out and wanted to share it with you. I think it might put on a smile on your face by looking at it just like it does for mine.

I love the soft texture and color of the simple variegated yarn I had in my stash. It is a baby acrylic and worked up perfectly.

This really didn’t take me very long. Maybe a week or two? Once I started the actual pattern repeat it zoomed along:)

I like how the border really finishes it off nicely, don’t you?

I used a pattern called Idyllic Day that I had in an old Afghans for All Seasons book. Do any of you remember those? I still have several of them and still browse through for inspiration. Modern yarn can really bring them back to life:)

I hope you can get your hands on this book. It has several fun patterns. But if not, I think the pattern is online.

Well, it has been fun sharing this project with you. I apologize for my absence over the last while. I really don’t know how time can slip away so quickly. I am still creating and am excited to be sharing with you! I will be back in a day or two with a little blessing blanket I have been working on. Too much fun!!

But until then, here is another picture of my “Idyllic Day”. I hope yours is an Idyllic, SWEET day as well!
