Blanket Finally Finished!

Way, way back in February, 2015 Sandra posted on her blog, Cherry Heart, about a new blanket pattern she was working on, The Weekender Blanket. I was so drawn to it and determined I would make one for myself. And what a great way to use up stash! Who doesn't have a boatload of stash?


With a name like Weekender Blanket it sounded like it would be a quick project. NOT! Especially when you get side-tracked, which is definitely my modus operandi. I can't say for sure exactly when I began the project but I downloaded the pattern in March 2015 and began working on it shortly thereafter. It took until this January 2017 to finish it ... To read more please go to my new blog...

  1. It is so beautiful. That's all I always say, Linda, but I am at loss for words when I see those bright colors, the beautiful patterns, the softly crocheted stitches... I will be fighting for this blanket too if I were one of your dds or dds in law!

  3. Thanks Karen. The border pulls the whole blanket together. I think my eye is drawn more to the border than to even all the colorful hexagons! I am continually amazed at the creativity of the designers of these patterns.

  8. What a fun blanket! That yarn looks soft, and warm, and the colors are so much fun! This is a great way to use up scraps too! I am running a year long Granny-Spiration Challenge, and would love if you came and linked up with us :) There’s also a yarn giveaway going on right now.
