Crochet Edged Receiving Blankets

Original Source: Unknown
 For a couple of years now, I've been eyeing crochet edged receiving blankets. The idea was tucked away in the back of my mind as a project for a rainy day, until today - it is literally raining as I type this post, and my idea is on its way to becoming a reality. I hit "purchase" on a skip stitch blade from Amazon this morning! You can practice this technique without a skip stitch blade; however, the outcome is much more consistent with the blade - so I'll wait (im)patiently for the mail man to deliver my blade.

I'm hoping to edge several blankets for my own sweet babe, and maybe stock pile a few as baby shower gifts. (Hint hint: friends, you ought to join me in motherhood......)

And who knows? If I'm feeling ambitious, perhaps I'll make some edged pillowcases while I'm at it!
