  • Kathlynn - Hi I love this blanket pattern. I was just wondering before I start making it I wanted to know exactly what brand of yarn did you use and what can I use and how many does it take to complete.August 31, 2017 – 12:38 pmReplyCancel

  • Cindy Pons - ThanksJuly 31, 2017 – 12:34 amReplyCancel

  • carol plant - Hello – i just found this blanket on pinterest – i just found out yesterday i am about to have a 3rd grandbaby and of course wanted to make a blanket for the new arrival – i love this pattern (and the colour although i am going to have to go neutral) i am going shopping for yarn this week eventhough the baby is not due till the end of february – cant wait to get started on it – p.s. my cat does exactly the same thing as your especially if i am quilting – i guess it the warmth of the quilt and the comfiness of the yarn – these things obviously need their stamp of approval – i will try to remember to let you know how this turns out but it could be a long time – i am going to check out your other things as well regards carolJuly 18, 2017 – 5:40 amReplyCancel

    • Susie - Hi Carol – Congratulations on the addition to your growing family! I would love to know how your blanket turns out so do share photos when you’re done (after your kitty has approved, of course!) Thank you so much for writing to me today!

  • Wendy - This is a beautiful blanket. What brand of yarn did you use?June 5, 2017 – 8:55 pmReplyCancel

  • Christine - may i ask why you have so many loose ends, why don’t you change and continue because the distance is not so big. Thank you.April 8, 2017 – 11:33 amReplyCancel

    • Susie - Hi Christine, now that you’ve mentioned it, I suppose I could have made it work by carrying the yarn over without tying off at the end of each row! I don’t know why I didn’t think of it while I was crocheting the blanket! That’s what makes blogging so wonderful – such a great exchange of ideas! :)April 10, 2017 – 8:05 pmReplyCancel
