Granny in Spring

I posted last month about my Mohair Blanket with Daisies and I loved it so much, I crocheted another one!  Patons Lace Sequins in Quartz (2 skeins) and Peridot (5 skeins) and a J hook.  

The photo doesn't show the very subtle sparkles in this yarn.  It's just enough bling without being garish.  
No design plan here, just changing colors every so often.  It so reminds me of Spring or Easter time!  It would be a great baby girl gift for an April or May birth.

It's still a work in progress, but my plan is to crochet a simple, single crochet, edge.  Then, adding the Quartz daisies along the edge every so often.  I should have it done by next week.

I'm using the same daisy loom I used with the first blanket, only wrapping more times around to get a thicker flower.

If you're making pretties to add to your projects, using the same yarn, make them first, so you don't run out of yarn.  
Fringe all along the edge would be fun.

Would be cute as a photo prop too!  Drape it in an Easter basket with baby inside!


Yarn tip:
After hand washing your just knitted socks, and squeezing them gently, get out your salad spinner and "spin" the rest of the water out!  


  1. Love the pink and green together. Very pretty!

  2. Beautiful colour combination and I really love the daisy edge. A real delight.

  3. love the colors :) The thicker fluffier daisy will be very pretty!

  4. What a beautiful blanket. I love those daisies and that yarn. I need to look for a daisy loom.

    1. I'll bet you could make your own if you hunt around on line. I think I'll try that and post the info!
