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.

A lightweight and colorful corner-to-corner blanket that is written in baby size but can be worked up to any dimensions you want, this Spring into Summer Blanket is pretty terrific! Using a yarn with long-color runs gives the self striping and reduces the need for weaving ends. Works up easily without much brain energy--perfect for relaxing on a warm Spring or Summer day!
The pattern includes:
--yarn quantities and complete materials list
--suggestions for how to easily adjust the size of your blanket
--clear and detailed instructions for working the blanket and border
--a detailed picture section with descriptions to help a beginner through
