neo-natal mermory sets

I read on one of the web-sites about the memory sets.

So as I like to crochet and am involved in GRANGE, I thought I'd make a set to enter in the local county fair. I did not have the linus story to add to it but the superindent was with the judge when she looked at my entry. I made a baby yellow cap and blanket,the size of a dimestore babydoll.

Patty said that the judge never took it out of the zip-lock bag but sat for about five minute holding the bag in her hands and looking at it.

Patty wondered about that. Until I told her that I've past a marker that must be the judge's baby (dated from the 1950's) about a thousand times, near my dad's marker.

So even though some people say it might be morbid I know it touched at least on mom.

The pattern is very easy ch 40,dc in 2nd ch from hook and across. turn dc across 2 more rows. turn 2 dc,ch 1 2 dc across. turn Make to size about 9 inches wide. cap ch 4. sl st to form circle 6 dc in circle join row at top of 1st dc of row. dc ,2dc,1dc around . join row . 4th row dc around. 5th row dc sc around finish off.

I use 4 ply for this pattern but you can use 1 ply(baby) just adjust size but stitch count. pattern name Grange"NEO-NATAL MEMORY SET"
