“The Class of October 2015” are the result of a very rainy October. These comfort dolls are given out with a small blanket for a sick child from my Project Linus chapter. My sister, husband and I had a lot of laughs making these cute dolls, that will give comfort to a small child. Can you guess what doll was the first one?

Here is another corner to corner blanket that my sister made for Project Linus while visiting me. The edging for this blanket is really cute and fun to do. The pattern is Elephant’s on Parade and is very easy. 48×48

Cute 3’x3′ blankets for the World’s Biggest Stocking Project. I think l will make a few more later in the year, they were very easy and quick to make. Anyone can get involved, knit or crochet a piece of the stocking to support military children left behind.

This is my first rectangular corner to corner blanket for Project Linus. This was a lot easier then I anticipated, it is almost the same as the square corner to corner blanket, only difference is, once you have the width that you want, you stop growing on one side of the blanket and keep increasing the other side until you get the length that you want then you decrease both sides to finish. I have to give credit to the Crochet Crowd for great video instructions. The instructional video shows you how to make a square corner to corner blanket, how to change yarn and how to make a rectangle corner to corner blanket. 43×55
