WHAT I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW: Crochet blankets!

For the past two days the weather has been in the 60’s (Can I get a woot woot?!).

Well, now that it’s getting chilly out, it’s time to start thinking about ways to keep warm.  For some reason, my downstairs will not stay warm very long so when it is really cold out, it’s nice to have a blanket on hand.  I always see the prettiest crochet blankets at thrift stores when I go, but if you aren’t comfortable hunting down one there, you can always check Etsy for some really cute ones!

Vintage Crocheted Throw Afghan Blanket Sweet Sherbet Baby Striped

Before I get to some that would look great in your living space, how cute is this one for a nursery?! I love the yummy colors!

Vintage Crochet Blanket. Green Mix Chevron

I purchased one like this one the other day in a buttery yellow and cream combo.  But how cute are those shades of green?

Inventory 038

This one is mine (above). Can’t beat $1.50 at a thrift store!

Not into all the color?  What about blue and white

Vintage Crochet Blanket / Rug Navy and White

But if you’re like me and don’t mind a punch of color, there are plenty of colors to choose from on Etsy like this one

Vintage Crochet Blanket Wide Zig Zag

I like this one too!

Vintage Hand Knitted Brown, Cream, and Orange Blanket

This one would be cute in the child’s room with all of the colors! AND… it’s only 12 bucks!

Vintage Crochet Afghan Blanket Throw Rainbow of Colors

I LOVE the colors in this one

Vintage Crocheted Striped Afghan Blanket Lap Robe

Have I inspired you to add a crochet blanket to your décor this Fall/Winter?! This would be an easy way to add color to your room.  It is a lot cheaper than purchasing new pillowsSmile

It's what I'm loving right now too. You know as of latte I've amassed a small collection of them?

I actually have one my grandma made for me. I pull it out in the winter months when I'm lounging on the couch.

I love crochet! I have a box of yarn just waiting to be twisted together - but once I start I can't stop! :)

Oh, I bet there will be a Missoni version of this look at Target in a few days! Janell

Crocheted blankets are a big deal in my family, because my grandmothers on both sides make them. I love to use them in the winter. Thanks for the reminder, I'm going to go put mine out now!

Have a great weekend!

You've inspired me to get to work and make one. I usually stick to little crochet projects (hats, scarves) but I should try doing something a little bigger. These are great blankets!
