Crochet Blanket #4

Afghan in progress, at Polka Dot Cottage

As I sit here in my cozy family room enjoying my Mod Floral Blanket, it strikes me as the perfect time to tell you about the other Christmas gift I was working on. I was unable to talk about it, since it was a surprise for Neil. Of course, it’s hard to surprise someone you […]
