Crochet Blanket

Crochet Blanket: "Crocheting:
According to American crochet expert and world traveler Annie Potter, 'The modern art of true crochet as we know it today was developed during the 16th century. It became known as 'crochet lace' in France and 'chain lace' in England.' And, she tells us, in 1916 Walter Edmund Roth visited descendants of the Guiana Indians and found examples of true crochet. "

Some beautiful hand crocheted baby blankets. It is sad for me to say that is might be cheaper to buy than to crochet or knit them. The only difference is that I love to knit and crochet.
