A Finally FO and UFO

For you non-crochet/knit people, A Finally Finished Object and an Unfinished Object :)

I finally got the best friend blanket tied and backed, but guess what I forgot??? She READS MY BLOG! Duh!!! So, you'll have to wait until after next weekend when she gets it to see pictures, or if you have ravelry, look me up cause I have the pics on there. Sorry Biff :)

Now, for some actual pics and not a teaser... I'm making the boys new blankets to match the monkeys. Their other ones are a little babyish, and they are turning 1, after all! Anyways, look...



I found the material at Wally World for $2 a yard... Isn't it cute??? I'm going to back the blankets with that and then appliqué the boys initials in bright yellow felt on top of that. I can't wait to see how they come out!!!

P.S.

What is your Ravelry name so I can look you up? I'm "redhairedlady", LOL!

Oh, very colorful blankets! I can't wait to see how you back the crochet with fabric. I have never done that before.

Your monkeys are adorable as is the blanket - such talent. I love the crochet squares at the top of your blog. Would you be willing to share the pattern for these or where the directions can be found. Thanks!!! Anne

Okay, so...when you make an afghan you back it with fabric, like you would a quilt? I've never heard of doing that and I think it's a great idea!
And the monkeys just plain rock!
