My latest crochet blanket is completed. Actually I finished it several months ago but I didn't want to post the picture until after Christmas.
Our daughter-in-law Lindsay is our ultra patriotic, ultra conservative girl. Her favorite colors are red, white and blue. Her wedding pictures were taken in front of an impressive stained glass window of the flag at the Bob Dole School of International Studies, University of Kansas. Even her Christmas tree - and after the Fourth of July, Christmas is her favorite holiday - is decorated in red, white and blue. Had she not been medically disqualified, she would be an Air Force officer along with Chris. Instead she is the poster child for officers' wives and "support our troops." So when I saw this yellow-ribbon pattern I knew it was for Lindsay. Merry Christmas to our star spangled girl.
