Yet another Caron Simply Soft Brites.....


Well I figured out my mistake from my last post.. that will teach me to read a new pattern at night. But I got it figured out! And now have frogged what I started working on.. and started again. I'm now back to where I was before frogging and have added a little bit.

This will be a baby blanket. As I have a horrible problem with starting something so large and then loosing interest. So far it will be part of my stock. A local store owner here in town is re organizing her store and will rent out sections of it. So I may have possible store space where I can sell my creations. I'm so excited about it!!! So this will be something that I'll have up in the shop once it gets going.

I'm also using the Caron Simply Soft. Some BRITES colors and some are not. Colors I'll be using are as follows... Blue Mint *bottom color* Lime Light *2nd color* Iris *3rd* Lemonade *the yellow* Rubine Red, Mango, Grape and Watermelon. And those are also the order in which the colors will go. My husband Chris was my random stripe generator last night. I'm using the Granny Chevron's pattern ( # 190, page 115 ) in Jan Eaton's book, 200 ripple stitches.

I think the pattern is easy enough and the colors bright enough that I should not get bored with this. However I will be starting a new job tomorrow, so hookin time will be limited. But I don't think this one should take too long.. Plus I should have lots of yarn left over for another blanket in this yarn. I may do a regular granny with the leftovers.

**edit to include** Forgot to say that I'm using a G (6/4.25 mm) hook. I really like how the stitches look with this size hook.

Megan, I started the granny chevron but already am stuck! I ripped out row 2 and started over but its coming out the same-wrong. Row 2 says chain 3, turn, skip 3 sc then 3 dc in next sc 3 times......when I continue to the first peak this first section is longer then the others. Help!

This makes me wish I could crochet! Or knit! Or whatever you did. :)
