FO Friday, Number 9

As promised I have a couple of finished goodies to share with you today.

 First up are these 2 lovely 8 inch squares for the July C’Ville Granny Square Swap. My swapner hails from Maryland, and she requested two 8 inchers in purple/pink/red. While at Michaels this purple Vanna’s Choice was the only colour to really speak to me, so I snatched it up and started searching for a couple patterns.

The square on the right might look familiar to you. It’s the Petals of Spring May from One Crochet Day at a Time. I made a 12 inch for my purse/tote swap, and loved it so much I altered the pattern to make an 8 inch square. I love this pattern, the square is so wonderful!

The square on the left is another One Crochet Day at a Time pattern, called Shells Around. It is a 6 inch pattern, which I enlarged to make an 8 inch square. I really like how different but complimentary they are! Hopefully my swapner also likes them!

Next up, the baby blanket! It’s finished! Yahoo!! I LOVE the way it turned out, so soft and delicate and sweet and baby-licious OH MY! I was worried the border was going to be a pain but with the help of bestie and BF it was no problem at all! I cannot wait to gift this to the baby momma and get her reaction! The pattern is the Classic Coverlet from Lion Brand, I used a huge ball of Bernat Baby and an H hook for the body and an I hook for the border.

Here is a photo of my completed blankie over top of bestie’s almost complete balnkie. She just needs to do the shell around the border and it’ll be done! She used a different yarn (Snuggly Wuggly I think?) and hers is so soft and wonderful, the difference isn’t huge but there is definitely a difference. We both hope the mommas are in ❤ with them like we are!

So there is my FOF for this week, as always, check out the others at TamisAmis. Also, check back on SUNDAY for a special weekend post! XO
