Many Thousands Of Stitches


My Mom has had a closet full of crochet thread, like FOREVER! Some of she got off E-bay for different projects, the rest she bought. She decided that she could not move these to New Hampshire, (once we sell this house), cause Dad would have a FIT and a half!!! So..................she decided to make a twin sized blankie out of all of it! (then she could take it with her! Ain't she smart?) After many thousands of stiches, and hours of work, this is her completed blankie. Just maybe...............I will be able to cuddle with her under it, I'm hoping anyway! Believe it or not, she still had some thread left, so I will show you next week, what she did with it.

Billy OMC that is just absolutly beautiful.
And it will be very useful when you move back to New England!! What a great way to use all the yarn. I can just see your sweet little face all cuddled up in it now.
