Afghan Finished

It's finally finished! I have been knitting this afghan for seven months and have learned so much...especially about unknitting and going back and fixing the odd stitch several rows down. You will have to excuse how bad I look in the picture, but I wanted to show how nicely the afghan molds to what is underneath it. The finished size is 48" x 60".

Baby's First Yellow Yarn

Hello men,
My dear co-worker made it through her first trimester of her pregnancy. Unfortunately, this past Friday's visit shows no fetal growth or movement, so the baby was lost. Poor dear. Mom and Dad are coping and are tough people, so they will rebound well.

New Scarf & Surgery

Hello Everyone. I haven't been posting for awhile as I have been dealing with all that precedes hip replacement surgery. I have been in pain for a couple years and this year it just got to be too much, so Nov. 9 I go in for a right-hip replacement. I am not looking forward to the rehab, but I am looking forward to no more hip/leg pain.

Baby Blanket Yarn & Pattern

I am planning on making a baby blanket for a friend of mine. I have found some patterns, everything from a washcloth-type pattern to some so complicated that I can't begin to understand them. I am looking for something that would be considered middle of the road, probably a pattern without a lot of lacy holes in it. Baby fingers and lace aren't a good match.
