How many blankets can one girl have you ask?
Well, when you're a crocheter, knitter, or even a quilter, you somehow end up with what seems like a gazillion of them. It's inevitable. You start out making one, then another, then another, and before you realize it there are piles of blankets sitting around the house.
Oh but they're so pretty.
That's what we tell ourselves.
That's how we justify making even more of them.
And that is just what I've come to share with you today.
These fleece blankets are my favorite to make. Adding a pretty crochet border to a piece of store bought fleece is quick and easy. Very satisfying too I might add.
This burgundy plaid blanket is my favorite. I take it everywhere. It packs well since fleece is so lightweight. It's kept me warm during many football games and track meets.
This is actually a redo. As you can see in the photo below I had already added a border a couple of years ago. You can read about that post here. I made a mistake and used Caron Simply Soft. With all the use this blanket has gotten the yarn didn't hold up well. It was looking frazzled and worn. I've learned that the Caron yarns get fuzzy really quick. So I spent a couple of evening ripping out the old border and putting on a new one. I used Red Heart Super Saver this time. It holds up much better. It's what I've used on all these blankets.
This blanket below was a goodwill find. It's only a small lap blanket but I was drawn to the Native American print and colors. It's quite popular here in New Mexico.
It was still in it's original plastic packaging and came from an Indian school in Montana. I love it. It's very eye catching.
This camouflage throw was one we already had. I think our son Michael received it as a gift many years ago during a Christmas gift exchange at church. Although I'm not certain about that. It's been many years ago. It already had the blanket stitch so adding a border was a breeze.
I've posted about this one recently. You can read about it here. It's also a favorite.
I've also posted about this one although it's been a while. I absolutely adore it. Another favorite.

See what I mean?
There's no stopping it.
I'll probably make more.
What are you working on?
