I hope that everyone stays safe during these difficult times associated with Covid-19. If you haven’t already, try to spend some time away from the news. Also, try and set a little time for daily exercise, while adhering to your doctor’s orders regarding exercise, and the self-distancing rules. Lots of prayers and blessings for all of you! Stay safe! 27Mar20.

I have a wonderful surprise for people following along with my Crochet Along (CAL)!!!

We only have 4 blocks left until I start making a YouTube video tutorial showing how to attach the fleece backing. Some people have opted for Tunisian Crocheting their own backing, which works too. After I attach the fleece backing to mine, I will crochet the clamshell border. I already have a YouTube video tutorial that shows how to crochet a clamshell border.
For the first 2 blocks, I made the Angler Fish (Also known as the Lantern Fish) and a Swordfish. Why did I include the not so pleasant looking Angler Fish? The Angler Fish is so bizarre and seems like something out of science fiction movies!! Did you know that only the female has the fishing pole like protrusion? I chose the swordfish because it is so distinctive and it is one of the fastest fish in the ocean!

I was over halfway finished with my next ship block when I realized that I was using the ocean blue color instead of my sky blue color! I had to do a lot of “Frogging.” (Undoing my beautiful Tunisian Crochet work. Huge sigh). My ship is turning out good though. I put red, white, and blue for the sails, but you can change the colors for your own unique ships if you want to.

Now, all of the blocks are complete!!
Some people like to use Tunisian Crochet for the backing, and it looks beautiful too! I am going to attach an inexpensive fleece backing to mine.
First, I chose the fleece that I wanted to use.
If you chose a patterned fleece, you will want to make sure that you pay attention to the pattern and/or words. My fleece says “Marvel Comics,” so I want to make sure that it faces the right direction or faces the “right side” of the blanket. I trimmed my blanket down to the size 59.5″ x 76″. Make sure that you leave approximately 1 inch around the complete border of the blanket because you need room for the embroidery stitch.
There will be a YouTube video tutorial coming soon showing how to make the embroidery stitch.
Brenda B. asked if I could create blocks with the name of the CAL and the date and year. I will work on these blocks as bonus graphs. You can switch out the bonus graphs or create one more row at the top/bottom of the Graphghan. You could also use the bonus graphs for pillows. 🙂
