Almost 40 years ago, in 1977, I made two crocheted blankets for my two youngest kids, entered them in the Harford Fair and won blue ribbons. Each was different. It took 32 different colors to make them. Each stripe is a different color. I must have gotten the idea to hang them on the clothesline and take a photo, from my mother! She and my grandmother taught me how to crochet. My own three girls never showed an interest in learning this art.
