Crocheting by Dee

My MIL is awesome at yarn crafts. If you ever have a yarn related question (knit, crochet, making pompoms or even a rag-doll wig), she's the lady to go to. We're down here visiting and she has a pile of baby blankets that she made to sell at the church bazaar but weren't purchased (truthfully, some of this was our fault - she was visiting us during the bazaar so she couldn't market them properly). They are beautiful, soft and warm so I'm listing them for her on my etsy page.

The first 3 are crocheted out of Caron Simply Soft acrylic yarn. I'm using the same yarn to make a blanket for my cousin's wedding and Dee has made baby/toddler blankets for my children using this yarn - it is SOOOO soft!!

The next 4 are simple fleece blankets that Dee has added a crochet border to (also in Simply Soft). Most are scalloped shell pattern but the green one is a little different pattern. I don't know what it's called though.

I still have to photograph and list the remainder of the blankets (there's more fleece blankets and some flannel receiving blankets) but I also put up her crocheted monsters which have some hearts already!

I'm also asking her for a pile of cotton kitchen washcloths to list but she has a list of people that she makes them for already so I don't think I'll get them for a while. Some of these are really simple while other are guestroom-quality!
