It's not that I don't like blankets. I just don't like how long they take. I have a blanket around here somewhere that I started 10 years ago. It is only 50% finished. I find baby blankets and lap blankets much more doable.
I recently spotted a lovely blanket on the Pinterest board of one of the bloggers I read. It was called Vintage Crochet Blanket and the pictures fascinated me. I found the pattern and did something I rarely do: I purchased a pattern for a single item.
I'm on row 6 of this beauty and it looks so much more complicated than it is.
