Yarn Along

Have you ever thought about it...
A ball of yarn and two sticks...keep me entertained for hours.

Last week I started a new blanket in shades of purple, for my great niece Madelyn.
I have never knitted anything for her,
she is only 8 months old and still has plenty of time to use a blanket.
When she out grows it, she can use it for her dolls.
Her mom Christine is the type of person who treasures handmade...
I know this gesture will mean a lot to her.

My sea glass from Sunday, the small pretty shell has a crab in it.
It appears he/she has passed on.

I am happy with the colors, although I would have liked the darkest purple to be a light gray.
They were out of that color, so I went with the dark purple.

This blanket is still at the same point.
I will start back up on this one when I finish the purple one.


  1. It is amazing what one can do with a ball of wool and two sticks, isn't it. =) Loving this new blanket, Debbie. Gotta love the colour purple!!

  2. I love your work, Debbie. The new colours are great,

  3. I'm sure this will become a keepsake.I definitely should, cause it's so beautiful and made with love.

  4. I love your sea glass displays. My daughter found a piece of "sea" glass when we were at Loch Ness!! I wonder if Nessie was drinking a Coke in a bottle.

  5. I am so surprised you started a new on and hadn't finished the other one. Maybe it is just me that has that rule:)

  6. The dark purple looks like the deepest part of the sea!

    I have a blanket my grandma crocheted when I was 10. My now 13 year old is asleep under it at this moment! (Yes, at 11:30 am...haha)

    "Live a life you love."

    I love that saying!

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog today.

  7. Debbie, this is gorgeous!
    I absolutely love the colors you chose for it.

  8. Ah yes, and my kitty would agree with you too. What a lovely piece you're working on. The colors are lovely!

  9. Get that rotting crab off that blanket!!! You'll have a stink you can't wash out!!!LOL
