Scrappy preemie blanket

This is a scrappy preemie blanket.
I just used up a whole bunch of scraps of yarn.
I think it turned out pretty.

Many blankets in progress

These are made with chunky yarn. I have two squares done and am almost finished the third.
Close up. I made this pattern up as I went along.
Another crazy stitch baby blanket.

This one is pretty but as it gets bigger it takes forever to finish a round.

Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe

This is the recipe I use....honestly it makes the BEST cookies in the world.

Preheat oven to 375F

1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup unsalted butter or margarine
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla

Mix dry ingredients together. Beat butter in a medium bowl until creamy. Beat sifted ingredients into butter until blended. In a small bowl, beat egg with vanilla. Mix beaten egg mixture into butter mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonfuls of batter, spaced well apart, onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes about 36 cookies.

More preemie blankets

Here are a few more preemie blankets that I have made in the past few days. Sure is a good way to stash bust These are really quick to make up. I seem to be stuck in "crazy stitch" mode.
