Re Connecting

I found out that a dear friend of mine also knits and sews too! Today was a beautiful day for a drive to Fairfield where I was able to reconnect with an old friend. Laura, a talented lady shared her beautiful home and garden goodies with me. She lives on 92 acres of land with beautiful views and gardens. She loved her new hand knit dish cloths. We had good intentions of kitting, but ended up enjoying hearing about each others lives. Stay tuned for how her cap turns out for her grandson and my mayan cotton vest is almost complete!

Plush Baby Blanket

Hurray! I just finished another baby blanket! Lots of people I know are having babies! This blanket is for my PT, Tori! The yarn is very soft and plush. Wonderful for a newborn baby!

The pattern is easy! All you need is size 10 needles, 5 balls of Berroco "Plush" yarn-3 balls of a main color, 2 balls of a contrast color. Then just cast on 90 stitches, work in a stockinette stitch. Change color after you finish with a color! This pattern is from Kaleidoscope Yarns.
