Dino Dash


I love making baby gifts.

I think the hardest part is waiting to post photos of the beautiful blankets– after all, it wouldn’t do to give the mama-to-be a sneak peek, even accidentally.

So this colorful creation was made last winter…when we had that dratted April snowstorm that nearly did us all in with waiting for spring.

More self-striping yarn (for even more pretty colors, see last week’s post), and this marvelous pattern:


This is my third blanket or so in this pattern and each one turns out so differently! I love playing with color.

For example, I made this one to match the nursery colors- exactly!



This time, I let the yarn wander as it will. It was a dinosaur theme, and I love that the blanket looks a bit like a volcano, or perhaps the sun, at the dawn of time.


Just beautiful. I love the colors, don’t you? The variety of stitches in the pattern show them off to maximum effect.

And a fun sneak peek to a future blog: I’m already making another, this time in a lovely cream…the monochrome is gorgeous too!

Happy hooking! Autumn is nearly upon us and I am dreaming of cozy crochet time on crisp autumn nights. See you soon!
