I used a discontinued yarn for the beige section. It's so fluffy and thick! I think it's called Lur Color Carisma. Here's a photo of the yarn I used:


I used Red Heart Plush in Light Sage for the rest of it. It's a cushy yarn too.

This lapghan is gonna have a SOFT border!

WEEEEEE!!!! I'm so excited!!

Nope. No cordy thingy yet. But I think I remembered where it is.

In my laptop case. With my laptop. That's broken. That my brother is fixing. One state away. But I've got a couple weeks, right? hee hee If not, I'll be off to bf's house for a photo shoot!

If I leave bribes for my mail lady, will it get here quicker?!?!?

I'm looking at stitch patterns..... how many sts are on the needle right now? And this is worsted weight, right? About how many yards am I looking at?

(Captain! I sense a trip to the yarn store is in your future! *gasp* Hide the credit cards!)

It's 200 stitches
(instead of the 300 that we have on the Blankets)

And yes...we are using WASHABLE WORSTED WEIGHT yarn.

I'm not sure how many yards it will be. I just always use leftovers from yarn in my stash.

I bet you'll get it tomorrow!

I mailed it on Tuesday. I was stuck in bed on Saturday and Monday with a bad back.

Here's the confirmation number for the USPS Priority Mail package:
0305 2200 0001 0471 3923

Ladybug Lady - Did it get to you yet? Should we start stalking the mail lady?
