The Bavarian crochet lap blanket completed

| October 23, 2010

Well, its finished. Its 34” square, its not a great picture but To me, the “back” is actually nicer than the front, its pretty warm though so it will be good in winter. The person I was going to give it to, doesnt want it, and not because they dont like it – they didnt […]
