Knitting up a storm

Well Heather is going to get a different baby blanket tahn I thought. Only because I can't find the Lu Lu yarn I need. Stupid Walmart. Mom picked out Red Hearts Baby Clouds in Tutti Frutti, it's okay, but it reminds me of Homespun yarn, which I totally dispise, but so far it's working okay.

The mint and white baby blanket is going okay. I need to finish writing out the pattern, have been doing the written version of the chart, cause I hate reading charts. I have about two and a half blocks done so far, but I can't find the first block so techincally only one and a half blocks done. After I finish this second block I'll sew the first one (it was a solid white block) to the one I finish tonight. Hopefully I'll get the baby blanket knocked out within a week or so, ha. It took me more than what I thougth it would take to get Roger's blanket done, whoops. We'll see. I'll try to post pics when I get ti more completed.

Blankets, blankets and more blankets

Well I'm working on the baby blanket for Heather. I've gotten two squares done, with who knows how many more to do. it's in mint green and white. I did a sweater for her baby (due on Roger's birthday) in Mint Green so that they match.

Ed was down for Easter and he saw the blanket I did for Roger. He wants one now. I am going to Walmart on Saturday to see if I can find some brown Softee Chunky yarn. If not we'll see what I can manage. Maybe a green or something. Who knows.

I have another baby blanket to finish, but need yarn for that one too, but it's almost done. I have three squares to do and then sew it together.

I will be glad when blanket making is over. Although It won't be done for a while because I have to do the sampler afghan for myself. I am thinking that I'll do it in natural Softee Chunky. But we'll see. I need to get more stitch markers, mine seem to have disappeared.

Roger's Blanket

I"ve had Roger's blanket done for a couple of months, but I haven't had time to really post much, so I'm finally getting around to posting. I found the pattern but I asked him whaty he'd like it in. or something like that. I can't remember. I did it in Dallas Cowboys colors, since he's a Cowboys fan.

Another Knit List

I must be really into knitting cause I've joined ANOTHER knitlist. This one is "my knitting room". Which is really small, but that's okay, cause I like small groups ;) Becky seems nice so far. I asked her to send me the stitch patterns for Jan through April. IF I get the wrap done that I'm doing, and Heather's baby blanket AND Aly's blanket I may do something for myself, but we'll see.
