Hi all!

I sent Lemon Drop on last week.... Meant to get a pic up on here, but forgot to do that before I got it packaged up... Hopefully the next knitter can do it, it's really pretty!

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

No worries, Ashley. Wendy is almost done with her section, and it's almost ready to travel again. We'll get a picture one of these days!

Wendy just posted the following picture of Lemon Drop.

Doesn't it look citrus-y??

HELP on bee stitch
Regarding the bee stitch for "busy baby bee" - this is my first time knitting in the stitch below and it doesn't seem to be coming out right - it just looks pretty much like garter stitch. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong? I've looked at the video on this site and still feel like I'm following directions - help!

I posted this on the other thread, but I thought this website was the most helpful http://techknitting.blogspot.com/200...tch-below.html . Basically instead of knitting into the loop on the needle, look at the loop right below it, put the needle through that loop, and knit like you normally would, but through this bottom loop. When you pull it onto your right needle, the top loop that you didn't knit will unravel off the bottom one and a "bar" will now sit on top and behind the loop you now have on the right needle, creating a little upside down v. OH and by the way, since there are 100 stitches on the needle, it is not an odd number like the pattern requests you to have, you just have to adjust for that too, just you won't be creating a mock rib brioche pattern instead of the bee stitch. I hope that helps!!

Sarah, what brand of yarn did you use for Busy Baby Bee? We're trying to figure out if this is a preemie or worsted weight blanket.

Lemon Drop arrived on Saturday...it's such a pretty, summery start to the blanket. I'll have to get to the store to pick up some appropriate yarn. I'm looking forward to starting on it. I'll post a picture after it's done.
