Cheerful, Creative, Crocheter and Collector of all things Colorful describes me to a C--er, I mean a T. My sweet, left-handed granny taught me (a righty) to crochet when I was but a youngster. My first project was a hideously long scarf for my dad. It seems I just didn't know when to stop--something my teachers told me in school, too! Although crochet and other craftiness have always been part of my life, I channeled my energy and creativity into teaching Jr. High and High School sciences for many years.
When I am not "yarning" (as described by my youngest), I treasure time with my family, friends, running, thrift store shopping, and learning new creative skills.

With a super nifty stitch pattern that provides stretch and texture, and looks much more challenging than it is--the Irish Sea Blanket is perfect to welcome a new baby or make for yourself in any size you want! It has fabulous texture and works up really quickly. Plus, you can make it up in any colors you wish to suit your style and decor!
The sample blanket was made with worsted weight cotton but this blanket would be equally fabulous in a different fiber or a DK yarn, as well.
The pattern includes:
~stitch abbreviations, special stitches and notes sections
~complete materials list including yarn types, colors and quantities
~a thoroughly tested and clearly written pattern (US terms) including border instructions
