I made this cute baby's afghan last month, but sorry, just finally getting around to showing
you. Do you remember this pattern? It's been around forever. The first version I remember
seeing was done out of fleece, with crocheted parts.
This pattern is totally fun. Of course a few small changes were made along the way. I
made it rounder than the original, by using a half-granny square and sort of fitting it to the
beyond the edge. Changes were made the facial features, and head. Add as many rows to
each square to up the size of the entire afghan, so it will wrap around baby. A border goes
from ear to ear, changing colors as needed.
This is good old Red Heart Super Saver. I like using this yarn for charity items, because
you just know a baby's blanket is going to at some time of it's life get thrown into a washer
and dryer. This yarn may not be fancy, and is sort of looked down on..... but it sure does

I am so tired of this heat. Today they said it was only 99 degrees but I swear it was 120....
If it wasn't for the crepe myrtles, and the magic lilies, there wouldn't be much in bloom. The
Autumn sedums flower heads are evening burning brown in the summer heat. Not much
fall color, I suppose.
This weekend is the Cherokee National Holiday and our town will be filled to the brim. It's a
good weekend to just curl up in the house and crochet. Did I tell you I really, really dislike
crowds? I look at the lovely pictures of everyone on vacation. I'm thinking I really need
one. I am honestly thinking of taking one without hubby this year. Hmmm Has anyone out
there done that? Just curious....
