Crocheted blanket for Mom
I finally got it done! The weather is really warming up, so I'm glad to report that I have now finished my Mom's summer blanket. I think she'll like it. It's made of baby yarn and is very, very soft.
Mom sleeps in her chair instead of a bed (bad back), and she likes to pull a blanket over her at night. I happen to know she sleeps during the day, too, while she says she's "reading". But she does get a lot of reading done, so I just mailed her off 22 pounds of books to keep her busy.
Here's the blanket, just a simple ripple pattern with a three double shell stitch around the outside. Should keep her nice and warm...
