Baby Blanket

Good Morning!  For seven days I have posted every day. It’s a miracle! Let’s see if I can continue for the rest of the month.  I hope you’re not getting bored with these daily posts. I’m rather enjoying it.

I finished a baby blanket Sunday and although it hasn’t been washed or blocked yet, I thought I would still show it to you today.

It is the simple corner to corner crocheted blanket. The pattern is free on  Ravelry.  I used almost a full 1 lb. skein of Bernat baby yarn.  I do enjoy this pattern. I did a simple double crochet, followed by single crochet border. It doesn’t take much thought it all and I can watch TV or read a book while I crochet.

Thank you for all of the well wishes and prayers yesterday. They are truly, truly appreciated. And I have great news! The lumps have not changed in size since May so I get to wait until next November for another ultrasound and mammogram. Yippee!

On the downside, there is a horrible stomach bug going around our church. Apparently there was one little boy in the nursery with diarrhea on Sunday. That’s all it took! Every child that had been in the nursery was sick by Monday and their parents are all getting it now. At last count there are over two dozen people sick. Including my husband. Our Thanksgiving potluck is supposed to be this Sunday and there is talk of it being canceled. How sad. Nita also had it last night. I am hoping against hope that I don’t get it.  Welcome to winter and this season of illness.  It makes me want to hibernate in the house and never leave, but then again, Dennis goes to work and brings the germs home anyway. Ha ha!

I hope you all have a wonderful healthy day, and I think you again for the gift of your friendship, love and prayers.

“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19



  1. I'm enjoying your daily posts and love seeing your projects. Yes, ''tis the season to pass germs back and forth. I hope you can avoid them.

  2. Good news on the lumps, now lets hoe that you avoid this bug. 'Tis certainly the season for bugs! Beautiful blanket.

  3. I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were blogging daily! I need to pay more attention! The blanket is so pretty and I hope everyone recovers soon!

  4. Nice blanket, I am enjoying the bloggers that are posting daily! That must be a hardy bug going around:(

  5. Love the baby blanket. C2C is fun. Gosh, I hope Dennis gets better soon and that you don't get it, too. Blessings always sweet friend. :)

  6. Sweet blanket!!! Fingers crossed that the bug skips you. Tummy bugs are the worst. I spent a night last week on the bathroom floor and know that for a fact. No bug, just too much ice cream but it was a terrible night.

  7. This morning I put a few more rows on the Grandma's Dishcloth pattern preemie blanket I am making. I am enjoying the process and am encouraged to keep at it as I admire your latest completed pretty baby blanket in this post. I am thanking the Lord for your good test results and praying that the virus will vanish and have no more victims! xx

  8. Bravo on the blanket finish. I'm enjoying my autumn colored C2C shawl. My sister Denise is making one like it but in gem colors, it's beautiful! I sure hope you don't get that flu bug.. sounds awful. But you can hardly not get near your husband! I'm glad you had good test results, good news! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  9. Praise God sis such answer to prayer it all went so well.
    How very gracious our Loving Heavenly Father is to us..
    (And was thinking tonight how quickly I forget the greatness of His mercies.)
    Love the baby blanket.
    Will pray no more contract the bug.. hand hygiene key as transmitted through mucus membranes but not easy as parent of toddlers.
    Healing mercies on all and possibly if God so will enough be well enought for the dinner.
    Lord bless you all dear Betsy.
    Prayer hugs

  10. God is so good isn't he? That's a very pretty blanket. I love making baby blankets and I get so much joy out of making them. Have a blessed rest of the week!

  11. Wow, watching TV I can see, but reading a book . . . you are one talented lady. i have a Aunt that used to make incredible sweaters and she would take her knitting with her to the movie theater. I'm always impressed with your work and this baby blanket will look amazing wrapped around a pretty pink new baby :)
    Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my watercolor quilt. This quilt was pure fun . . . so many different elements went into making it that the process was far from boring. Your comment warmed my heart this morning . . . wishing you a happy day:)
    Connie :)

  12. Glad for the good news on the lumps. I am sure whoever receives that lovely baby blanket will enjoy it! I hope that you do not get sick and that your husband gets well soon. Nancy
