Wow, my "children" are all grown up with kids of their own. But the one thing they are always asking me for is one of my crocheted blankets, scarfs, or hats. I make several every year and my kids love them. They show them to friends and neighbors and tell me they are the envy of everyone. Why? Because a crocheted blanket is warm and soft and cuddly despite the tiny holes that exist between the stitches. Hope it helped. PS. My Granddaughter who is eight wants Monster High Dolls and accessories.
