Special Memories Blanket
Hi Everyone! This week we will be completing our Special Memories Blanket Crochet Along with Part Five! Thank you all for sharing your version of the Special Memories Blanket, your stories and precious time with me. I have enjoyed getting to spend my time with you and sharing more about myself. If you have not completed Parts One – Four of the blanket, no worries. (When you get it to that point then you can pick up the last section Part Five.) This part is easy peasy and should not take you but a few hours to finish. Please keep in mind that it does depend on how big your blanket is. Now we will be adding the edging to our blankets. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to crochet this blanket with me. Enjoy!
Grab your blanket, I hook, your favorite beverage and a snack, and whatever else you may need so we can rock out the last little bit on our blankets.
You may have noticed during this crochet along the images may not have the same background. We have been traveling during this crochet along. Yesterday was our youngest son’s birthday and my husband had to go out of town for work so, we decided to take a little trip and go with him. This week’s picture is taken in our camper.
