I just love how sophisticated this natural yarn and brown ribbon look together! I'm not usually one to put ribbons on baby blankets, but for this one I'll make an exception.
I've resisted the Tiramisu for so long that my heart now longs to make this one first:
This one is called Exquisite and comes from the genius that is Terry Kimbrough! I've made one of her blankets before and loved it (as did the mom who received it). The pineapples are such a classic crochet motif and the center, while lacey, is still solid enough to provide warmth. I had to have the pattern for this. So, two false starts with Amazon followed by a winning bid on E-Bay and the pattern is now patiently waiting for some attention.
If the mojo does not fade out after making Exquisite and Tiramisu, I also want to make this one:I love the edging on this one! So feminine and soft. Another winner from Terry found in this pattern book.
This is another classic crochet motif/pattern. It has grown on me over time, and now I feel the need to play with it. Besides the look, one of the things I really like about this design is that it can easily be adjusted to make a smaller receiving size blanket.
Here's hoping that by getting these out of my brain and sharing them that I will have enough patience to finish what must be done first! Hope you enjoyed the baby blanket fest. =-)
