I think I may have a problem...


What do you know? 
I somehow found another crocheted blanket this week.
$5.00.
FIVE DOLLARS, PEOPLE!

Really, they're just so pretty...I can't contain myself.
And, each new one I find seems to be prettier than the last.
Ugh. 

I definitely have a problem.


(P.S. there's six more in the house that aren't shown here...)

  2. My newborn daughter has two handmade afghans and I find myself matching her outfits to the blankets when we go places! Now that's a problem! :)

  3. They're gorgeous! I totally get it. I don't blame you...I have one from 1984 that I cannot live without. I need to learn to make these myself!

  4. Very pretty! How do you go about cleaning them? I'm always worried about ruining my crocheted blankets.

    1. Because I've always gotten them from the thrift store, I've never held back with cleaning them. I immediately put them in the wash on delicate cycle...hot water. I even put them in the dryer...low heat. Some people would NEVER do that, but since they only cost me $4-$5, I don't take any chances...and well, I've never once had any problems when I've done it! Hope that helps!

  5. Sarah @ Life - is that really a problem? I coordinated all my kids blankies to their clothing....I guess if you don't realize it's a problem, then, it's not?

  8. I still have the one my aunt made for me when I was 12. No problem.

  10. I have a lot of afghans too. So many, that they sit in my closet collecting dust. I just don't know what to do with them all.

  11. I've been buying lots of vintage afghans, at garage sales, in the last two years-- $1, $2, maybe $5--it's crazy!
