What great projects, marria! I like the name of the blue blanket: a scrapghan! :roflhard: All of your work is seriously FAB! Thanks for sharing the photos! I have always loved the timelessness of the feather and fan pattern! I made one, too, back about 10 years ago. Brings back memories! ;) My little granddaughter, Fiona!

Thanks! The scrapghan was a lot of fun. I put all my bits and pieces of yarn of similar shades and hues into a bag and pulled out three at a time without looking. When one ran out I grabbed another until all the yarn was gone. It was a quick and easy project and a great way to use up scraps.

Ooh, I love them all! That Cherry Blossom Beanie is fabulous -- is there a pattern?

Thank you everyone for the nice compliments. :hug:

Slim--there is a pattern here:

I modified it slightly--I left out the first two rows and last two rows of the chart because I wanted a more "solid" border for the flowers.

Beautiful! Everything! LOVE the Feather and Fan blanket ... it's just such a classic. And I'm starting to feel the itch for a stashghan too ... :) Love the way yours came out! Great job on the hat too!
