Glad you are feeling better today Sandy...

I got Lavender's Green today... well it got to my mailbox before today, but I got it today, it's been a BUSY week!

I got yarn for it today too, for my knitted section and for the border. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

Thanks for the tea! My inlaws are visiting and my MIL will love it if I share it with her!

I feel much better today, so she might be onto something.

I'm done with Forest Greens and will put it in the mail either tomorrow or the next day.

I used Baby Bee Sweet Delight Baby. I've never used this before, and I LOVE it! It is soft and very easy to work with. Here's the yarn, with massive yarn puke.



Here's the blanket...




And heres a close-up of my portion. The stitch is called Farrow Rib. I really like it. It was simple and looks nice on both sides. It's probably one of my favorite stitches that I've used on these blankets.

Where did you get that yarn I don't think I've ever seen it before.

Love the stitch!

Baby Bee Sweet Delight is SUPER soft. Some of the colors are softer than others. I don't know why that happens, but it does. The yellows are always heavenly soft.

Forest Greens looks GREAT!

Lavender's blue is on it's way to Constance123. My mom sent it for me and forgot the delivery confirmation. So let's all keep our fingers crossed it makes it there safely!
eta I totally spaced on taking a picture! It was all sealed and ready to go before I thought of it. I guess today was a forgetful day for the women in my family
