A 2015 Finish for Gabe



My second grand-nephew, Gabriel Alphonse, was born Monday morning at 12:52 am.  He is 8 lb, 9 oz and 20.5 inches long.

And, right on time, I finished his blanket–giving it to my niece in the hospital Monday night.  It’s a pattern I’ve used before– Attic24’s Neat Ripple Pattern. I absolutely love this tutorial.  It’s so clear and concise.  It has TONS of pictures to help you through.  It makes for a perfect first crochet project.  For mine, I cast on 115 stitches to make 8 waves with a J hook.  Each wave is 3 rows tall.  This one is made of Caron Simply Soft in Dark Country Blue and Peacock Feather.  It finished at 33″ x 35″.


It’s the first finish of 2015!!!  Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.

  1. Love the blanket, so different from the granny square rugs I have made for babies in the past. I think its time for a change. Thanks for the inspiration.
