Forest Friends Baby Blanket :: The Beginning
Thank you so much everyone for your help in choosing the blanket colours in the last post!!!! As you can see from the above photo, I went with using the colours from the registry as the inspiration. I started it today, and I'm really happy with how it is going so far. I'm using Bernat Satin yarn since its nice and soft and should wash and wear well. I had originally wanted to use Caron Simply Soft, but I couldn't find the right colours. The yarn is crocheting up really nicely though, so it's all good. This really is a fun little hooky project!! The ripples just seem to flow off my hook and I get such a thrill out of the colour changes that it makes it just seem to fly right along.
Right now I am staying at my sister's house for a few days! I came up here last night and will be here until Sunday. It's been nice to have access to high-speed Internet, and a quiet house today to just relax and work on the blanket. Tomorrow my Mom is bringing my puppy Emerson up to stay with us. We are all very excited for that! She is the sweetest little girl and so much fun. She loves her Uncle J and Auntie S and will be so excited to see them. I am very much looking forward to spending some quality time with my sister and her husband over the weekend. I'm sure there will be lots of knitting/crocheting and chatting going on! What could be better than that?
Have a good Thursday evening everyone!!
Much Love, xx
