The Peppermint blanket is my first blanket of 2016 for Project Linus and is named after all the cool minty colors. I received a nice bag of all the same brand yarn from a friend of mine , so it was very easy to get the idea. The blanket is a simple corner to corner rectangle pattern, and the trim is one row of single crochet, the next row is a V stitch and then finished off with a row of single crochet. I love how it looks. 52×45

“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

Here is a cute snuggly warm blanket, for a small child. I find it hard to believe that it is just about two years, that l have been crocheting blankets for Project Linus . Time sure does fly when you are doing something that you are passionate about, I really enjoy making the blankets for children. 48×48

I started this blanket a few months ago and put it down and got caught up doing other style blankets for Project Linus. I call this the “Magic Blanket” because I wasn’t happy with the colors, until I added the orange and magically I got the pop I was looking for. 50×50 .This is a solid granny square, you can find the free pattern, with excellent instructions at Fiber Flux .

I saw this today and it made me laugh out loud, thought I would share the laugh. I always have gauge issues, so have to use smaller hook because l crochet so loose. 🙂
“Strawberry Shortcake Blanket” is the name for this cheerful blanket, I chose the name because of the pretty colors that remind me of beautiful strawberries. 46×46
One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.

This is my latest blanket for Project Linus . This is a nice thick corner to corner blanket, using 2 strands of 4 ply worsted weight yarn, so “Chunky” is a great name for this cozy blanket. 42×42
