Daisy Square Blanket

A Blanket for the Front Porch
with a delivery date of 2012 :-)

After viewing the photos from this last post,
I noticed that the front porch was lacking that crocheted touch.
There were just a couple of red crocheted flowers that were sewn into the middle of a couple of cushions that were recovered from leftover fabric from a curtain project from days of old.
(That was an excellent run-on sentence, eh?)
Not really enough crochet goodness to even shake a stick at.

And since in the corner of the porch sits a daisy topiary and because I enjoyed making
the daisy square pillow from this post so much,
I decided a daisy square blanket was just what the doctor ordered.
(Actually I am employed by doctors and if they were to give me an order it would NOT be "crochet daisy blankets," hehe.)

Did you ever get something in your head that you like
 and make it over and over again?

that's what's going on here.
So colors were picked to coordinate with the concrete painted rug and away I go....

Lots of yarn from the stash and a couple from the store....mostly Red Heart Super Savers and a couple Sensations, "Sincerely" for the right green color.
Gotta' love two JoAnn's 40% off coupons for two skeins of yarn!

Please stayed tuned for a very, very, very long time.


  1. I admire your dedication. The last time I started a crochet blanket was high school. Somewhere in my mid-20s the yarn was donated to charity. Now I make scarves. :)

  2. Oh yes, scarves, pillow and dishclothes are more my speed...that's why this has a delivery date of 2012, that gives me until 12/31/2012. :-)
