Baby Afghan - Finally Done!

These Peas Taste Funny

So the baby afghan I introduced in this post is FINALLY DONE!  I checked the calendar and it took me two days shy of six months to complete it.  What an endeavor!  Of course there were plenty of other projects started and some finished within that time.

I LOVE how the diamond pattern turned out.  I may try to make up a beanie using the same braided loop idea.  And I'm very happy with my choice of blue for the edging.  It will work great for a little boy or girl.  This is the largest crochet project I have taken on, and I am so excited it's done!

 When I initially started it I was going to give it away as a present.  The baby that it was intended for is now almost a year old, and this blanket is probably too small.  I think I'll keep it for our baby #2 whenever it decides to come along.

My husband asked me what I was going to do now that it's done.  Silly man.  I have so many other projects lined up!  Next, a slouchy hat for my sis-in-law.  I've already made one for a sister.


  1. That blanket is beautiful! I think you should keep it for yourself and baby number 2. Not that many people will appreciate the work and sacrifice that goes into making something like that. I really want the pattern for that, I would like to try it. Could you let me know where you found it? Thanks

  2. This is so gorgeous. I would love to see the pattern for this as well, and thanks for joining up to our party this week.

  3. The pattern for this afghan is mentioned in the first blog I mentioned it in. Check it out at :)

    Thanks for your comments!

  4. Just wanted to let you know that we featured you this week in our Link It Up Thursday party - pop on over if you want to grab a featured button.

    1. Thanks for featuring me Terry! You are wonderful! I've added a featured button to this post. :)
      I wish I could say that it took me 6 months to complete because of the detail, but it's really because I was new to crocheting and SLOW! Ha ha!

  5. Wow, great job! It looks beautiful! Congrats on getting it finished, and thanks for sharing it at Shine on Fridays; hope you'll be back tomorrow!


I'd love to hear from you!
