Fluffy fringed white baby blanket

I finished this 30″ x 30″ white baby blanket using some very basic white yarns. I used a half double crochet through the back loop stitch and it finished up in about two weeks. I did not use a pattern. I wasn’t quite sure what to do about the border then I found the fluffy yarn in my stash and just did a double crochet stitch all the way around after doing a single crochet stitch all the way around in the other yarn.

Collage

Last year I took a collage class and am just now really getting more into it. I’m using old books, postage stamps, magazines, metal leaf, oil paint, and various papers like Japanese origami paper on canvas board. Here are some of my recent works.

Green wrap

Made this wrap on my knitting machine. 

Dark Green Scarf

I finally finished this scarf using echo view fiber mill 100% merino wool in a mini bean stitch. I also used a size J crochet hook. The wool is incredibly soft and this will make a really nice scarf for someone.

Pink baby blanket on the knitting machine

This baby blanket only took four nights to create on my brother KX-350 knitting machine. I used a basic acrylic yarn and crocheted a single, half double, double crochet border around it. The border was a little too bunched up so I know now for next time to skip every third row when making the border. I used 120 hooks on the machine and knitted 150 rows on tension dial number eight.
