Yarn Along

We were away for a few days, 
this week was more about having fun than knitting, lucky me!!

The Gallatin Scarf 
with yarn by Backyard Fiberworks is still on my needles.
I worked primarily on this this past week and have made great progress.
It is bigger than the round knitting needle I am working on,
so it does not lay beautifully flat right now,
it will when it is done.

Here's a close-up of the lace work...
So far, so good...I can't make a mistake knitting this part of the pattern...
I have no idea how to fix lace knitting.
That would require a text to poor Leanne, who always helps me when I am in distress,
I have not had to text her in a while!

I must add that I love this piece and the color,
I might make another one for me.

I am still working on the blue 
Chevron Baby Blanket
I started this blanket on June 6th and I am on the home stretch,
4 blocks of color = 40 rows to go.
This pattern is free on Ravelry, 
I am working with Berroco Vintage Yarn, which I love knitting with.

- and can you believe it, I know someone who is pregnant - 
so now I am covered, boy or girl!

And I am so thrilled to have this to look forward to...and no, it's not me!!

    1. awwww, yes, first tip...be aware of the kayaking boys, they don't tell the truth. there is a path they recommend you take. they said, 20 minutes for them, 40 minutes for us. 2 hours later, i had to be rescued. they are very handsome, really cute but they are way off on their guess-tamations. don't believe a word they say!!! hehehehe

      i miss you too - is baseball over??

  4. I do love that baby blanket. I just found one on Ravelry that uses bobble stitches (crochet) to spell our words.
    Downloaded that and cannot wait to get started. BUT--have to finish the afghan for my new grandson-in-law first.
    He's 6'5" so it is taking quite a long time. :-)
