Notes

I started this blanket exactly a year ago and finished 48 squares of 120…put it aside to start some other projects…moved twice…got knee deep into knitting and it has sat in my basket of unfinished projects all this time…

Until my mom (the crochet master) came to visit for Thanksgiving and helped me turn it into the cutest pillow I have ever seen! She whipped up the ruffle edge in about 2 hours!!

I LOVE it!! Thanks Mom!!! xoxo
