Barbara's Pokey Dot Throw
I wanted to make a baby gift for a young couple expecting their first baby and I found a free Red Heart Yarn pattern Pokey Dot Throw. (This link is to the Ravelry page as the Red Heart page was down when I wrote this post.) It's a very easy pattern, perfect if you have a bright group of small bits of yarn. It was fun to make all the circles at once, and then to add the background stitches that would make them into squares.
This made up very quickly and it left me with the desire to make myself a granny square afghan, but in bright colors. So since I had to buy some white to finish this blanket, I treated myself to a few skeins of bright colored yarn for my dream afghan. I'm researching various pattern and when the fancy strikes, I'll be ready to begin.
