A Finished Blanket

mdc550, a talented crocheter who joins us from Ravelry, has made an entire blanket for one of our SDU babies! She worked extra hard to make the holes teeny tiny. The card she included was beautiful, with a wonderful message inside for the recipient.

She has also offered to help us with crocheted borders for our blankets, when we need it.

By serendipity, we got to meet in person tonight, and she is as lovely as the blanket, if not lovelier. What a pleasure to meet one of our group in real life!

Which got me thinking, if any of you are ever going to be in the Philadelphia area, or if I'm heading through your neck of the woods, it would be wonderful to meet.

Here's mdc550's terrific work!
