I started crocheting this blanket on the car ride to the Outer Banks last month. I had three skeins of yarn that I had found in the attic. It didn't last very long. I looked everywhere for more, here and North Carolina. I finally found some on-line. I am back to working on it at night. It is for a little girl Amanda knows . She has leukemia and will have many months of treatments. Amanda asked if I could make something for her to carry around at home and at the hospital. I hope to have it done by July so Amanda can bring it to her.
