What's new?

What's new here? Not much really. Lent is over. Two baby blankets sit on my printer awaiting me to weave in ends and sent to the Pregnancy Resource Center. Two..no three more are on the needles.

This is actually the 2nd one made with Loops and Threads Charisma. Total cost for 4 skeins: $10.

I like the colors, though others claim it's hideous. The pattern is one used for many things. I've seen it done for dishcloths and the like, Start with a few stitches, increase with yarn overs til a certain spot, then decreases back to the same CO stitches.

It's a big fluffy blanket for a baby.

The next one is made with yarn Dave picked out at Hobby Lobby.

It's hideous.


But the stripes on it are kinda cool.

The next colorway was picked out by a random lady at Hobby Lobby, but that's going to have to wait until later for pictures.

The pattern is by Lion Brand and is called the Lion Brand Diagonal  Comfort Blanket. The pattern is free:

Well, back to homework. School is going well. Would be going better if I'd remember to study before tests, but what can ya do.
