Stashbuster #8: Ferris Wheel Baby Blanket

I finished the Ferris Wheel Baby Blanket yesterday. In the process, I discovered my personal crochet gauge is a lot looser than it has been in the past. I've always considered myself a tight crocheter, but this blanket came out 35" (not 32") and used two 7 oz. skeins plus a little more of a third. Interesting. The three colors I used are Aran, Coral, and Rust (discontinued), all Red Heart Super Saver.
Friday, this will be winging its way to Maryland for the Guardian Grandmas, organized by the lovely Debi Y. of Dly's Hooks and Yarns.
Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)

    1. Thanks :-) No, not sleeping much at night with the baby. But all my crocheting's done during the day. When homeschooling and housework are done, it's hooky time :-)

    1. Thanks :-) Hope gets credit for the rust. It was her idea for the border. It should go in the mail Friday, so maybe Monday or Tuesday?
