I was chatting with a friend last night and she reminded me of a baby blanket that I had sent her when her daughter was born - almost four years ago. I didn't have pictures on this computer, so she graciously shared them with me. I can't believe it was that long ago, but what a sweet memory, seeing her precious baby girl all snuggled up in something that I made.

I'm almost finished with another scarf that I'm making for a friend to match her favorite lime green crocs.
I still have a little to do and then the finishing so these pictures show it with all the tails, etc, but you get the idea.
This has quickly become a favorite pattern, and it's one I basically put together myself after seeing a stitch I liked that was easy, yet very pretty.
Next project on the list is something for ME!
I want something I can throw over my shoulders here at the house, and also for when I'm driving. I hate wearing a coat while driving, yet still need some sort of covering while the car is warming up. A friend at C'ville shared a pattern that she liked and I started one immediately. Here's what I've done so far and yes, I will be modifying the pattern to make it longer, as she did hers.
(Again, excuse the 'tails' and all that - it's still a work in progress)
The color isn't true in the pictures, but it is a very pretty light denim color with Red Heart 'Spa Blue', paired with Coffee, and I think it's a nice combination. I know I will get a lot of use out of this wearable, and this pattern.
