Monkey See - Monkey Do

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.

  1. My mother made afghans and blankets as well. I have one of each. Nice work!

  2. I love to crochet...mostly afghans!

    Your striped afghans are truly beautiful...and ribbon worthy.
