I'm Celebrating!

Yes, I'm celebrating I finished my baby blankie. Now I have a gift ready for the right person!! Always a good feeling. Only the person it was for has long ago had the baby and I gave something else, oh well. 
So here it is.....
I did one row of SC in white and one row of picot stitch.
Here is one more picture....
It measures 32"x25", the perfect size for a port-a-crib or stroller or car seat. I used Plymouth Yarn Encore D.K., about 3 skeins of each color. The pattern came from Project Linus, Granny Ripple Afghan http://www.citiusa.com/grannyripple.html 

My new project will be a knitting one. My plan is to make 3 bulky cropped cardigans for 3 daughters for Christmas. They should work up quickly with size 11 needles and bulky yarn. I will put a picture up soon.

This past weekend was so spectacular! The colors and sunlight were just lovely. Here are a few pictures....
The Woodstock Inn, Woodstock, Vt.
Some of my last Cosmos. I love old-fashion flowers

And my old-fashion nasturtiums.

And one more of my favorite things....
I love chimes, such sweet music....all day long!

Thanks everyone for visiting and sharing in my excitement of finishing my blankie!
