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.

On a flight home from Hawaii last summer, I began envisioning a flower blanket that reminded me of the glorious, bold flowers I had seen while visiting the beautiful islands there. So on the plane I began furiously designing--and this beautiful blanket is the result of that inspiration! It is thick and warm yet breathes. And the back of the flowers look as beautiful as the front!
This clear and detailed 13 page pattern includes:
-a list of materials,yarns and quantities used in the pictured blanket
-over 26 clear, step-by-step pictures of how to crochet and join your flowers
-several diagrams that simplify and clarify the join-as-you-go process
-a colored placement diagram
-a blank placement diagram allowing you to create your own color scheme
-a section to explain special stitches
This photo-tutorial has been thoroughly tested and edited for errors and clarity.
