Round and Round The Rectangle

20141106_135356[1]I’ve been in a crocheting and knitting frenzy the last couple of months.  Christmas is right around the corner and I am trying to get gifts made.  The above is my latest project now that I’ve got a bunch of scarves done.  It’s a rectangle granny pattern. I’m using worsted weight yarn and an H hook.  I’ve got at least 1 more round of each color to go, and then the fun of weaving in ends and blocking.  Since the pattern called for a chain 2 between each set of 3 double crochets, the gaps in it are bigger than preferable for a lapghan.  I’ve decided I’ll line the back with a layer of fleece.  That will add extra warmth and snuggliness, especially since the person it is going to doesn’t have the warmest house during the winter.  Although I am personally not a huge fan of pink, I think the colors look great together.  I am hoping the person it is for is going to love it as well.

Now, I’ve got more crocheting to do before my 5 year old gets home from school!
