Easton Baby Blanket Pattern

It's finally ready!  I've finished my Easton Baby Afghan Pattern and both it and the example blanket are available in my Etsy Shop -

I loved working on this.  The flower squares were fun to make and putting it all together was much easier than I had anticipated.  I love how it turned out.  The picot edging seems like the perfect finish for it too!

More stuff in the works and more ready for picture taking so hope to show you all soon!

Knitting Needles

Whoo hoo, this week I got my first set of interchangeable knitting needles.  I checked out a few brands but finally decided to go with Knit Picks...and they happened to be 25% off too! 

Last week at the Chain Gang Crochet Guild meeting we had a little "Christmas in July" gift exchange and I received 3 balls of Bernat Satin Sport in a pretty dusty pink color.  When the knitting needles arrived this yarn was perfect for a scarf project I've been wanting to try.  Sooooo.......

I'm off and stitching away!  I will show you all the finished product when it's done.

I also found the time to do some blocking and blocked the rest of the parts needed for my next pattern too!  So I hope to be finishing that up soon as well.

Til next time....Stitch on!

Current Projects

Whew, where does the time go?  Well, a lot of it is spent running around the house and in and out while trying to train a new puppy.  Dixie is growing and finally starting to get the idea of what "outside" means (also "go potty").  I finally got a picture of her cute face.  This is what she looks like (before her first haircut which is scheduled for next week)

While she *is* keeping me pretty busy right now, I am getting in some stitching time in the late evenings when the dogs all settle down for the night.  I'm currently working on 4 projects.  One is going to be a gift for a friend, one is something I've never stitched before, and one is a new stitch variation that I learned recently.

I have another project I'm working on as well, but I'm not ready to share a preview picture of it yet.  Hopefully I'll be able to do that soon.

Til next time....Stitch on!
