a semi-FO

Behold! The Pine Street Inn blanket that I seamed (using squares others had knitted) - using crochet! My first crochet "project", and I do think it turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself:


(Thanks again for the impromptu lesson, Wendy!)


I actually like the "reverse" side better, even though the side without the white crochet showing is supposed to be the "front", since all the better sides are facing that direction. But, luckily it looks pretty good from either side! That always helps with blankets, as they always end up all twisted about anyway.

So, now comes the mailing part...I have to find a box I can package it up in, and then figure out how to mail it cheaply...first, though, I'll contact the woman it's going to. Maybe she'll let me hand-deliver it, instead?

I am so pleased that I got it done before the holidays...hopefully it'll be a lovely present for a PSI guest and even their family! I like to imagine this keeping someone nice & cozy on a cold winter night....
