Crochet For Aly

I told you it would take just 4 skeins - see above - and 2 nights - last night and the one before - to make a babyghan. As one of my now grown nephews used to say when he wanted my attention - See! See! See!

This yarn is wonderful stuff.  The colors are a bit brighter than they are in person as they have a nice subtle range of colors, more pastel than they appear here.  This is the classic Diagonal Crazy Stitch that works up super quick, especially with this chunky yarn.

This particular piece will work better as a play mat than it will as an afghan because of its thickness.  The crazy stitch (or slanted shell) creates a nice, textured fabric.  Aly can spend some floor time on this and she'll enjoy the textures and colors while she explores the toys and people around her.  I think her two 4 legged furry 'brothers' will like it too.

I'll pop it in the mail soon so that Aly will be able to enjoy it before she learns to walk!  If you run into a situation where you need a very quick babyghan or lapghan, buy 4 skeins of chunky yarn and use this pattern.  Before you know it, you'll have the project done and off to its recipient.
