Update on this project. Strips are sewn together and the border is stitched on. This part has been a marathon of crocheting to make the Christmas Day deadline. Next up is the embroidery. The pattern for the border comes from this pattern.

I did this blanket for one of my cousins who is getting ready to have a baby. This blanket turned out better than I thought it would. I hadn't intended to put dark gray in this, but the dark pink turned out so...PINK, I needed something to soften the edges. Thankfully, it looks super cute and I hope she'll love it.

I found the greatest deal at a flea market this weekend. It was a DVD of Crochet World Magazine 2001-2010 put out by Annie's publishing. I got it for $2. There are more than 60 pdf files of all the Crochet World magazines plus any special editions. There are dozens of patterns in each bimonthly edition.

It was fun to see how crochet offerings have changed over time. In the earlier years, a lot of the patterns were for doll clothes and doilies. Later ones were more scarves, afghan, sweaters, and stuffed toys.

I've already printed off a couple of afghans I'd like to try for the winter.

Anybody else find bargains like this?

After seeing a blanket I'd made for my mom, my dad(who NEVER asks me to make him something), has commissioned me to make him a blanket. His parameters were: Blue and Gray(he's a Civil War buff), and he wants the names of his favorite battles embroidered on it. So I'm using this pattern but I've added an extra set of nine patches because the blanket as is is too short for my dad. I'm planning to add a large off white border for the embroidery, which will be done in cross stitch, but I thought I would show off my handiwork so far. 345 3" squares stitched into 23 strips.

I don't know if y'all have this problem, but my stash includes yarn that I bought without knowing how scratchy it was (e.g. bought in a packet that was closed, bought online, etc). I don't mean the normal scratchiness of wool, I mean yarn with things like metallic lurex in it (that makes it look pretty, but also scratchy), or nylon or other acrylics which add some glittery effects to the yarn, but that very fibre which catches the light is also a bit harsh on the skin. Some of the yarn looks just gorgeous, but it isn't suitable for making clothing or jewellery out of it, and it isn't robust enough to make bags out of it. I'm really stumped.

So have any of you any ideas of what to make out of this yarn?
