No, I didn't suddenly just get another grandchild. The bottom photo is from Ravelry and it is a picture of the Mix and Match Motif blanket by Linda Permann. I bought her book, Little Crochet, and this is the first project I have made from it. I am not a perfect crocheter; in fact, I would consider myself a beginner, but I thought this might be a fun, quick, easy project. I remember when our three year old grandson, Ben, was just a little guy and he would love playing with little blankets. Peek-a-boo, dragging them, wadding them up and plopping down on them. Now Addy, age 11 months, is doing the same thing and I thought I would make a little circles blanket for her. I didn't do all of the fancy circles, mostly just plain blocks, but I still think it looks like she will have fun with it. It is made out of the same Dishy cotton yarn from Knitpicks that I have used for the other knit afghans I have made. Again, not heirloom yarn, but machine wash and dry. I learned quite a bit as I made the 36 circle squares, and I may get other yarn and make a bigger blanket. I might use a bigger crochet hook, and I think a washable wool yarn would be gorgeous. I also may do a fancier border...picots would look funky-fun, don't you think? Bingo! Jerilynn P.S. Our favorite beach bar, Bongo's, is just two sand-walking buildings away. They have the best Zombies, Cubans, and live music. So maybe this beach-finished blanket should be called Beach Blanket Bongo.
