You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Sweet Dreams "Little Spidey"

I first came across the Spider-Man Web blanket a few years ago while perusing the web. It was love at first sight. I loved the way the red and blue colors looked together and was swept away with the embedded, black web outlines. I filed the project away in my head with a million other things I would never remember nor get to for that matter. After all, at the time my only grandson Dylan, was a bit too old for such things and little did I know then that Grant, 
grandson #2 , would come along with a love of all things 
A few weeks ago the little Spider-Man blanket pattern resurfaced on a favorite blog that I follow; . This time I was quick to action as I realized that time was of the essence. I knew I had to make it and make it quickly before that "fickle" little boy of mine changed his mind about good old “SPIDEY” and moved on to another action hero. So with the Christmas just around the corner I got right to it.  Here it is and thank goodness I’m done. While there was nothing hard about crocheting this blanket I must say I grew good and tired of the repetition of the pattern. Unfortunately for me there was quite a bit of finish work to be done, i.e. weaving in multiple yarn ends and marking out the web. As you all know I am not good at finishing things. I tend to be excited about new beginnings and bored with  endings.  That my friends is changing  (I hope). Anyway, I  finished it.  I've even added an appliqué spider for special effect.  (I think it might scare the dickens out of him though and if that is the case I will be removing the little critter sooner than later.)

I’m excited about giving this to my grandson Grant for Christmas this year.  He will love it for sure. 
  Please keep your fingers crossed my faithful readers.
 I fear that by December Grant might be all about BATMAN instead and that will be a problem as 
 I don't crochet with black yarn.....
Caped Crusader or Not.
Peace Out!
