Wow! It has been a long time since anyone post on here. I applied probably two years ago, but never got around to actually posting something.

Well, now I am moving and I will have to get rid of most of my supplies, so I am trying to finish up blankets and to sell them.

But here is I made as a winter gift for my daughter's friend. I was inspired by this work:

I used Carron Simply Soft Brites in: Watermelon, Mango, Limelight, Blue Mint and Grape. I also used Carron Simply Soft in Lemon for the yellow.

The blanket measures roughly 4'10" X 38".

New Afghan!

I'm working on a round ripple pattern I found over at Bernat's website:

The pattern starts out a bit finicky- I've had to alter a couple of spots to keep it lying flat. I think it's going to turn out pretty though! I'm working it up in Oyster Heather and Spruce worsted weight Wool of the Andes from KnitPicks.

In other news, there's a giveaway going on at my blog! I have a set of three adorable handmade dishcloths to give away in celebration of my blogiversary. To enter, just hop over to the giveaway post on my blog and leave a comment. Easy as pie(or Chrysanthemums, in this case)! :)

A yarn sale

This is a bit off topic, but something I thought everyone here would find useful. I'm not associated with the company at all, but I happened to see this and thought it was worth sharing.

There's a sale on at Pisgah Yarn & Dyeing Company's website. In case you didn't know, they're the manufacturers of Peaches & Creme, Honeysuckle, and America's Best yarns and threads. The sale is 50% off everything except for Peaches & Creme. They have sport weight cotton yarns in their honeysuckle line, as well as a ton of crochet threads, for all you doilymakers out there.

Baby Ripple

A finished ripple, for my soon-to-be baby niece. I'd had a bunch of Knitpicks Shine Worsted stashed for ages, and FINALLY it became this blanket. I love the colors, and the yarn gets amazing drape.

Ravelry: packnits' Cinnamon Ripple Afghan

Ravelry: packnits' Cinnamon Ripple Afghan
I finally finished this last week after months of occasionally working on it. Turned out big--73x46 inches, unstretched, and it's quite stretchy. So far being put to a lot of use on the couch.
