Daria's Blanket

This is the blanket that I crocheted for Daria.  I made it to fit a full size bed.

One blanket down, one to go....Kyler would like his now.  It's almost finished though so hopefully I'll get it posted soon.

The yarn I used was Bernat Pipsqueak "Sittin' Pretty".  What an adventure this blanket turned out to be.  When Daria and I found the yarn, we were only going to make a lap blanket.  That soon changed to a blanket for on her bed.

We went back to JoAnn's to get more yarn, but found it was a special and wouldn't be replenished.  Thank heavens for the great service of my store....they found the yarn for me in another store.  I called the other store and was treated just as wonderful.  I got 7 more delivered to my door and was able to finish.

The trim is made from a yarn called "Angel Hair".  I don't have the wrapper any more to tell you the brand but I do know JoAnn's does still carry it.

This is the most beautiful yarn and so incredibly soft.....I highly recommend it.
