Latest Round Ripple Blanket

July 3, 2020 No comments yet

Here is my latest round ripple blanket that I have been working on. I was lucky enough to get a few more brown skeins of yarn donated to me so I could finish it up. There are no stores anymore in my immediate area that sell yarn. The local senior center that donates yarn to me was shut down for months so I wasn’t able to get any yarn from them either. Last week they opened back up and I was so excited to go in and obtain yarn from them to finish this blanket.

Finished size is 52 inch wide. This blanket will be donated back to the senior center for their Veterans Outreach Program. Hopefully some Vet will enjoy the blanket and find comfort in using this blanket crocheted with lots of love.

Veterans Round Ripple Blanket

November 10, 2019 No comments yet

I just finished up this round ripple blanket for a local Veterans Outreach Program. I thought it would be timely to post about it in honor of Veterans Day. This 12-point round ripple is mostly crocheted with some scrap yarns and a few skeins of vintage yarn.

I just love crocheting round ripples as you just can’t go wrong with color combinations. It seems that no matter what mash-up I do with yarns, it always comes out looking good. The local Veterans facility gave me many of the skeins used in this project. And while I tried to keep colors coordinated, it all worked out nicely. This round ripple pattern is from Aggie May of Crochetville. If you have problems finding the pattern, just send me an email and I will help you out. Finished size of my round ripple is 47 inches wide which should make a nice throw or wheelchair lapghan.


So in honor of Veterans Day 2019, thank you Veterans, active military and those who gave all. We are forever in your debt for keeping our country safe and free.

Happy Memorial Day

As we celebrate Memorial Day, let’s not forgot the reason. Remember and honoring our Veterans and those who gave all.

On this Memorial Day 2019, thanks to all our Veterans here and gone. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

If you are looking to craft for a cause, may I suggest Warmth for Warriors. It is an organization who honors our troops and Veterans through crafting hats and mini stockings for Christmas. If you are looking for a crafting group such as this, please join us over at the Warmth for Warriors group on Ravelry.

Patriotic Crocheted Lapghan

Here is a patriotic lapghan blanket I just finished up for the Warmth for Warriors. Each year we have a blanket drive where people crochet, knit or sew blankets and lapghans for the troops and veterans. This is my patriotic blanket in honor of the 4th of July.

I took the original light & lacy baby blanket pattern and changed colors every 5 rows. I started with Red Heart yarn in red, then white and finally with blue. I crocheted 4 sets of 5 rows in each color ending with one last set of 5 rows in red yarn to finish off the blanket before adding the border. I then used the blue yarn to work the border.

Here is a closeup of the beginning of the pattern to show the detail of the stitch pattern.
