What I've been working on

So I've had some questions regarding what I'd been knitting.
Here's the final project.

It's a super soft lap blanket with crochet edge.

I don't know about all of you,
but I just can't have too many of them laying around.

 This one is for the apartment in California.
I love the blue edge!


Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

  3. Beautiful. And yes, I love throws too. My aunt knits things for me all the time, and my mom quilts things, so I have plenty of warmth when and where I need it. And beauty too! Yours is lovely.

  18. Hi, I love your lap blanket, so nice. I love to crochet and do a little knitting, but I haven't done either in over a year. I really need to get back to it! Thank you for visiting and leaving your kind comment on my Pink Saturday's Second Birthday Party post! I had so much fun designing this sweet table to celebrate Beverly hosting two years of "PINK"!

  26. Hola,
    this is my visit to you page, after you came to mine yesterday.

    We had a great pink Saturday. Well, I guess mine was better. Brownie didnt like all the pink cause he is a "Macho" :D
    I love your doggies. How many do you have?

    Hugs,

    Svenja

  29. Beautiful throw! Looks very soft - even in the pictures. I don't knit - wish I knew how, but I have learned to crochet in the last couple of years. I have really enjoyed that during our MI winters. We are currently in England & leave for home tomorrow. I've had a lovely trip but am definitely ready to get home and see my family. I saw you had made some similar comments in a couple of your posts. : ) There's just no place like home. Blessings to you & thanks for stopping by my blog. I added a few more pics from Bath - our internet wasn't working well the day I posted.

  36. Lovely blanket, I love knitting myself. Had fun exploring your blog and webpage, the mermaid excerpt was beautiful. It's been forever since I've given myself the luxury of escaping into a book and since summertime is here I need to take the time. Growing up, books were my world. Now it seems that although my children are adults, I have even less time to indulge. Thanks for the visit!
