Just a quick update...I received the Garden Garter blanket yesterday. (our internet was down so I'm sorry I couldn't post sooner) I had a family reunion to go to today which was about 3 hours away, so I worked on it in the car and already have about 3 inches done! It is a very pretty blanket so far. Reminds me of spring colors! I should be done with it in the next few days...I'll let you know.

Thanks Gail for the beautiful yarn! I love it! The color reminds me of rainbow sherbert!

Have a great weekend everyone!

If you only knew how many problems I had to work through, you wouldn't WANT to follow in my footsteps.

I'm sure you'll do an EXCELLENT job.

Our extraordinaire, SteveDallas, has offered to LEARN crochet, to be able to add a border to Salt Water Taffy.

Can any of our fabulous crocheters recommend some websites that have directions and ideas for borders that would complement our preemie blankets? Maybe I can even learn, too, if the directions are particularly simple

Thanks!

I can mail out some visuals that I've picked up...they actually make sense! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!). Also, check out KnittinMitchie because she has online courses, and I believe Crochet is one of them. If nothing else, she would be an excellent resource for learning more about Crochet.

NE Oddball Baby Blanket "August"
I finished my section of NE Oddball Baby Blanket, August and will be mailing it out this morning. I used the Double Moss Stitch in Caron's Simply Soft Dark Sage worsted weight yarn to continue our theme.

NE Oddball Baby Blanket "Nor'Easter"
I finished my section of NE Oddball Baby Blanket, Nor'Easter, and will be mailing it out this morning. I used the Farrow Rib Stitch in Caron's Simply Soft Country Blue to mimic the waves rolling in during a storm here on Long Island Sound. Of course, the waves are never symmetrical in real life, but then again, I tend not to be out on the water during a Nor'Easter anyway! Spikey's white caps say it all!

They are all gorgeous! You've been a busy knitter, gmmarton.

I'm just being a lazy so-and-so, down at the beach
