Great time to stock up!

And for all of you that asked about the crochet blanket edge... 

I am a beginner and in fact this is the only edge I know, 

so I hesitate to give any directions, but ...

...the holes on the edge is called hemstitching and is made with a special machine that a woman in our area does. The machine stitches the two flannel pieces together and punches the holes at the same time.
It is a double crochet stitch with Red Heart yarn called Moon & Stars.
The yarn is a small chenille looking yarn.  It's great because it hides any mistakes I make and I can stitch without counting and thinking much. The hook is 10mm.
Hope that answers most of your questions.

Happy shopping and stitching!
