I have a sister in law that is expecting her first child! Maybe you remember her from one of my past projects she modeled for me. Hats, shawls and scarves. She's helped me a lot! I wanted to make something special baby blanket for her. When I first saw this stitch I knew it would be perfect! I loved how there were diamonds in the spaces as well as the solid diamonds. A shifting into something else, just like she is'. a Mother. I do plan on having a piece of fleece sewn onto the back of this afghan before I give it as a gift to make it much warmer and leaving no holes for the babies fingers to get stuck in.

I have a sister in law that is expecting her first child! I wanted to make a special baby blanket for her. When I first saw this stitch I knew it would be perfect! I loved how there were diamonds in the spaces as well as the solid diamonds: one thing shifting into something else, just like she is becoming a mother.
Diamond Quilt C2c Graphgan
The Diamond Quilt C2C Graphgan is a crochet pixel blanket pattern with a modern look that features (almost) all the colors of Caron Little Crafties! Or you can use all those special odds and ends of your favorite colors and remember your favorite past projects - like a real quilt! Of course, I also needed a background yarn - and Caron Simply Soft is the perfect yarn to combine with the Little Crafties! I chose white, but I think this blanket would be amazing with black or gray as the backdrop for the diamonds. Just switch out the black or gray diamonds with the white Little Crafties skein! Both written instructions and a graph are included. I tried to match the colors in the graph to the actual yarn colors and create a random-ish arrangement, but of course, you can rearrange these colors however you like!
Blooming Granny Square Baby Afghan
Several years ago I hosted a crochet-along for a stitch sampler blanket and one of the squares was the Blooming Granny Square. In the CAL we did small squares as the learning swatch size. Well, one of my contactors loved the look of the small blooming granny square so she made several, seamed them together then added the same border we used for the stitch sampler blanket to her new blanket and voila! The minute I saw it I knew I needed to purchase the sample and publish it as an option for that very cute square. So, let's say thank you to Jennifer Purtee for her vision and enjoy this fun pattern. If you find you are having trouble with the stitch pattern you can always watch the video for the square I did for the CAL. It is a a step-by-step video tutorial that can be found on the Marly Bird YouTube Channel. By the way, have you subscribed to my YouTube Channel yet?

Velvet (Ribbed) Diamond Blanket
To begin with, this project is made using the Ribbed Diamond Blanket pattern. This pattern is especially interesting, because it mainly uses texture to delineate the constituent diamonds from one another. Combined with the velvet yarn, this is a blanket fit for a king.

Happy Lark Scrap Blanket
Sigh. There's something about a crochet scrap blanket that I just love. Taking bits and pieces of yarn leftover from other projects and crocheting them into something beautiful just makes my heart sing. A New Year awaits. Full of possibility. It's time to cleanse my life of the baggage and extra things to make my journey into the new year light and free. And even though these bits of string don't seem like much, sometimes they speak of unfinished business. Maybe they hold me back. Or maybe it's something completely different: like they beckon me to a far off adventure! This year we're making another crochet scrap blanket together! I'm so excited!
