So this is really crochet...

...that which, in my opinion, comes in second to knitting. I greatly enjoy crocheting, don't get me wrong, but there is definitely something special about knitting that crochet just doesn't seem to capture. Two needles, two hands and it's magically calming. The pattern is found in one of Lion Brand's Booklets. It was fast to whip up, though I admit the piecing together of squares is tedious (as anyone who has done this can tell you). My only dislike of the pattern is the loopiness of the chenille portions of the blanket. Perhaps that was because this was my first crochet project. I like stitches to be tight...another reason I favor knitting. Happy knitting this week everyone! ...or crochet. *smile*
