Chocolate Mint and Atlantic Waves look beautiful!! I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be having surgery on my wrist in the morning. I have a cyst that has to be removed. There will be no knitting for me for at least 2 weeks...unless I can figure out a way!! I will be checking in on the thread, however, I may not be able to type for a few days. I just wanted to let you all know that I will be checking in... I just may not be able to respond right away. As soon as I am able to, I will let you all know how it goes. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated!! I'm not really worried about the surgery (or not being able to knit) but my DH is going to have to take care of our 16 month old for the first 5 or 6 days (since I can't use my arm at all during that time). So, my house will be crazy for the next week or so.

Thanks

You're so lucky! I told my hubby about your annual pass, and he is very jealous.

Biltmore is ALWAYS gorgeous, but my favorite times to go are in the Spring or at Christmas. In the spring, there are tulips and azaleas EVERYWHERE! And the Christmas decorations are just beautiful, especially in the evening during the candlelight tour.

I think it looks neat. Reminds me of the tide moving in at the shore....the way it has different colors as it moves in and out on the sand.

Best of luck with your surgery! I'll be thinking about you and will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I had a cyst removed from my hand when I was 16, felt much better after I had it removed.

If you guessed HollyP's package with Butterfly Kisses, your right!!!!!
the first picture is of the package
the second picture is of the blanket on my bed, with the yarn that I will add to it. Note my bed decorations .
the third picture is a close up of the blanket with the yarn that I will add to it. I bought Caron Simply Soft in Soft Green yesterday. That is the ball of yarn that you see pictured.

Funny question, but have we all been using simply soft for this project? Cuz this yarn is really soft .
Thanks, Holly P.
(now that you know my address, are you gonna send me a birthday card in less than a month? My birthday is on October 5th)

I think this blanket is all made of SS so far. I tend to use it for these projects since it is so soft, comes in so many colors, and it's cheap! The green will look great! Your b-day is 2 days after my sil's. I just realized looking at the pictures that I left a little something out. Oops!
I can't wait to see your section!
