My second Annie’s Caring Crochet Club kit arrived and this time it’s a baby blanket. It’s an easy crochet project to practice your skills and learn a new pattern. The result is this adorable cozy soft blanket in pastel colors and I am pretty sure I will use this pattern again to make more baby blankets.
The crochet kit included 3 skeins of Premier Angel Light yarn called “Bird Bath” (pretty cute name for a yarn if you ask me :)) and pattern sheet. I loved that there was pattern diagram on the sheet in addition to written instructions. I like reading diagrams because they give a great visual of the project and it’s good to have options depending on how you prefer to follow a pattern.
I didn’t encounter any errors or glitches and the blanket turned out just beautiful, maybe a little smaller than it was supposed to but that’s probably due to my tight crocheting. Because the crochet hook needed for the blanket was already included in my earlier welcome kit, I didn’t receive a hook this time.

Just like last time with the chemo caps (read about my welcome kit here: https://handmadebyraine.com/unboxing-annies-caring-crochet-club-welcome-kit/) I chose to donate my blanket to this month’s featured organization Project Linus. There’s a great short introduction of Project Linus on pattern sheet and it made me go to their website http://www.projectlinus.org to learn more about them. It’s based in Missouri and dedicated to distributing all types and sizes and colors of blankets to children in need. They have local chapters in all 50 states and it was easy for me to locate one near me to take my baby blanket to.
Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.
Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.”
I absolutely loved making this baby blanket and once again I am grateful to Annie’s Caring Crochet Club and Project Linus for giving me the opportunity to contribute.
