Monday Morning

The ripple is coming along.



A lady at church gave me some yarn for a baby blanket.  So I tried it out.



That's it for today!  Have a great day.

Fourth color and colors picked for second project

Here is the fourth color in this Ripple.




I am very happy with it.


Now my daughter is wanting one.  So she picked these colors:





I will have to play with them a bit to see how I like them.  LOL

Have a wonderful day!

Moving right along!

Here are some updated pictures from my in progress ripple:


The pink is going to be the next color.  I am doing three rows of a color.  I am going to be going to Hobby Lobby today to pick up a few more colors.


I am so happy with this pattern.  Very easy to do.  I sat outside and worked on this blanket for a while last evening.

My neighbor's daughter came over and asked me what I was doing.  She is almost five.  I told her that I was making a blanket.  She said you are?  I said yes.  She asked me if she could have it.  So I told her that she could.  She is really excited about it.  LOL

Have a great day!

My first Ripple

Ok, I am going for it and doing my first ripple.  I found the greatest pattern.  It is well written and explains well.  Decreases are also written out.  I will post a picture when it looks like something.  LOL

I am using I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.  I started with some bright yellow I had left from a shawl.

Still working on my baby blanket.  I love that pattern too as it is easy.  I have one in white/multi tweed and one in soft pink.  So I have a project in every room and in the car now.  LOL

Long time, no post!!!

Hey Ya'll!!

Things have been crazy here.  But here are some photos of some projects. 

Both projects are made with I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.

Here is the start of a baby blanket for my nephew and his girlfriend who are expecting in Nov.  I am going to be a Great Aunt again!!!




Since I don't know what the baby will be, I chose this white with multi-colored specks.  Love it.  I will run a ribbon around the border when it is done and I find out what they are having.

My Mother's birthday was in April and I made her a shawl.  I also used I Love This Yarn.  Mom was 79 this year.  She would kill me if she found out that I told her age.  LOL






Gave away a shawl that was sunshine yellow in the same pattern.  I wish I would have got a picture of it.  Very cheery!!

Have a great day!
