29 inch Christening Ghan

This is made from a beginners pattern that can be found on the Project Linus site.
Both christening ghans went to my local church for use in their baptismal program.

Another Christening Ghan

This is a 9 point Round Ripple (pattern from Crochet Dad on Crochetville). It measures 38 inches. I used an I hook and the edging is sc, 2 dc, sk one st, repeat....skipping the 2 stitches in the "valley" and using 3 dc in the points instead of 2.
After I washed and dried it, it lay perfectly flat.

Baby Ghan

I just finished this last night, complete with the soon-to-be born baby's initials on it. I washed it this morning, wrapped it and it's now on its way to Florida and the parents-to-be.
It measures about 39 by 44 inches. The edge is all sc (in Caron's Cape Cod Blue) with a rev hdc as the final round.


Happy New Year!

A time to get caught up - again!
This is a set of facecloths I made for a friend for Christmas. I used cotton tots and they're really soft!
