The Mermaid Blanket!

I have a finish!  Actually it was done on February 7th, but I couldn’t blog or post about it anywhere because it was gift for DD#2 and she reads my blog and follows me on social media.  I find that so sweet, but sometimes I have to be super careful not to spill the beans!  Anyway, here it is in all it’s glory:


She loves it!

It came out the perfect length.  I was a bit worried since she is at college and I am here, but I used one of my other daughters who is about the same size to get it right.  Boy am I relieved!


She’s so happy!

She had requested this a while back and we bought the yarn together.  She knew I had started it, but not that I had finished.  Well, she has a birthday in February.  We all went to visit her and this was one of her gifts.  She was sooooo happy!


Her little fur baby.

Even her cat loves the blanket.

I’m linking up with Kathy’s Slow Stitch Sundays.

One Monthly Goal

I’m squeaking in right under the wire with my goal for the month.  I just had some trouble deciding what I wanted to commit to.  Finally the decision was made – the goal for the month is to finish with the tail portion of the mermaid blanket that I am making for my daughter.  The final fin will be next and hopefully this will be done so it can be gifted for her birthday mid-February.


January One Month Goal-Mermaid Blanket – 55 rows complete

This is where I’m at right now – 55 rows completed out of 66 for the top portion.  After that there are 10 more rows for the tail portion.  I am hoping that I can complete all that by the end of January.

This Mermaid Blanket pattern by Nadia Fuad of YARNtopia can be found here.

I thought it would be fun to share my “notes” page in my projects book

When I’m done, I’ll enter all this information into Ravelry.  Wish me luck!!
