Ahh, autumn. You make me want to light bonfires in my backyard, start drinking cocoa on the daily, and cozy up in anything warm and snuggly. This fall I'm exploring my reignited love of flannel (I'm actually wearing a flannel shirt right now as I write this), and with these local Minnesota temperatures ever on the decline, a DIY flannel throw was in order. I just love blankets - you can never have too many, which makes them a wonderful gift. This one was simple to make too, and ever so comfy.
This project is brought to you by the following joyous news: I'm going to be an aunt! I'm over-the-moon excited, and can't wait to meet my first little niece or nephew. That's right, I said niece OR nephew, and that's because the gender isn't known yet! I'm too excited to wait around to find out whether it's going to be a boy or a girl, and I wanted to get started crocheting a blanket ASAP. I made this gender-neutral baby blanket from a sweet sunflower yellow and cute mint green with alternating white.
The way I see it, you can never have too many blankets. They ALWAYS come in handy and are a great way to switch up accent colors during different seasons.

Have you seen the commercial for the Snuggie Blanket? If not, let me explain the concept: The Snuggie is a blanket with sleeves that makes anyone who uses it look like cross between a monk and Severus Snape. Silly? Yes, but not as silly as this parody by jacksfilms, which is actually even funnier if you've seen the original commercial first.
A chum of mine has just finished this lovely bit of loveliness:
It's a blanket made of knitted circles with crocheted edges. Joy has been working on it for an age, and says that while the pattern (which she learnt at The Knit Cafe here in Toronto) is simple it is labour intensive, as it takes 300(!) circles to make a good-sized blanket. But what a great, fun, and elegant way to use up scraps of yarn.
