  4. Dang it girl... I almost missed this tonight and went to bed without seeing till the morn. Lovely, great pattern. Fun baby colors without being to baby-ish. You are just whipping these out.

    8 circles done, can't wait to show you the pattern I found on Rav. She is also a new blogger for you to follow. Very new, but I see potential. We can't scare her off now. Hope to post tomorrow, if the sun is out and lighting is better. OK, I'll try to post either way.

    What's next? Is Barney working all weekend?

  5. Your baby blanket is very pretty. The stitch is call the twin stitch, one of my favorite stitches to use in blankets, hats, cuddle sacks and baby sweaters plus afghans.
