I have been making a baby blanket using Baby's First Lion Brand Yarn. It's a chunky yarn made up of 55% Acrylic and 45% Cotton. I chose to do this simple pattern that is more reminiscent of the tried-and-true washcloth pattern that has been used for hundreds of years. The parents like think simple.
Great News! The Carolina Fiber Festival will be held on May 18-20, 2012 at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC. I attended 2 years ago and had a great time. This year they are in the beginning planning to have a Men's Fiber Meet Up at the Festival! I think this was a great idea (I simply mentioned it in a message to the coordinator).
A week or two ago I saw a young woman sporting a beehive hairdo. This woman was maybe in her mid 20’s and it wasn’t any disheveled Winehouse-esque look either. She was quite well dressed and her beehive was well done and perfectly in place.
