Started New Blanket



I've started a new blanket in pinks because I had a ton of pinks in my stash.  (Oh, who am I kidding?  I have a ton of nearly EVERY color in my stash!  Ha-ha.)  The colors don't show up as nice in this picture as they are in person.  I think that gray stripe doesn't look right so I'm going to rip it out and not use it.  I'll just stick to the pinks/reds.

The blanket is done alternating rows of V-st and Double V-st...easy and quick.  I'm planning to make a pretty lacy border on this one.  I have the pattern written out and will post it when I post the finished afghan pictures.  This pattern is also very pretty when done in one solid color.

**************************

The Captain and I have been married 18 years today!  I better get off to the shower, fix my hair and put some make-up on so he doesn't look at me and think, "Geez, what happened to her in 18 years?"  Hee-hee.  We're not doing anything special really...just going out for a steak and maybe a little shopping.  We'll be home tonight watching the Rangers in Game 3 of the World Series.  They are bombing out so far.  They've lost the first two games.  Gah.

Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Oh, I love that Grey stripe in with the other colors, Pammy! I think it looks great and adds to the blanket. Seems to be the in style thing lately, but what counts is what you like.

    Happy Anniversary!!!

  14. Sure hope you enjoyed your day and evening. Sweet wishes. Out working in the yard all day, Beat-up. Tomorrow with Mom for surprise request at church and brunch. Not terribly thrilled about this one. Off to bed.

    I'm not sure I get this whole V-stitch thing. Send an explaination when you have a chance. No hurry. Problem won't start anything for a few more days. Still outdoor work to be done.

    I like the gray...
