I’m just stopping by to share with you a baby blanket I made.
I’ll be making a few of them to send to my hometown’s hospital Neonatal department. A friend back home asked on Facebook if anyone could help and I said I would.
I love making baby blankets, but the opportunity doesn’t arise too often so I jumped at the chance to make some for the hospital.

I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Lemon and Meadow green. I double knit the blanket using 2 strands of yarn at one time to make it super cozy. You can purchase the yarn over at loveknitting.com.
I have a new pattern for sale over at loveknitting.com – The Frances Beanie!
It’s my first intermediate pattern!! I initially categorized the pattern as beginner, but when I submitted it for review, loveknitting.com recommended I increase the difficulty to intermediate! Maybe I’m not just a beginner knitter any longer!! LOL!!

I finished my mock cable cushion cover!
It ended up a bit shorter than my other cushion covers I knitted, but once the cushion was put in and I sewed it up, it looked just fine.
I used 2 balls (320 yards each) of DK yarn. I double knit using 2 strands of yarn at one time and used US size 9 single pointed needles. I casted on 62 stitches and followed the mock cable pattern until I came pretty much to the end of my yarn.
The yarn that I used (and use for just about every project I make!) is Stylecraft Special DK and I purchase it on line at loveknitting.com.
The mock cable pattern was written out in an earlier post. You can click here to find it!
I was going to start my second matching cushion cover today, but I just found out one of my co-workers is getting married at the end of April and I want to make her a little something. I will share it once it’s finished!
I’m done the 2 other pairs of slippers I was a making for a couple of girlfriends. I delivered them today so I can share some photos without ruining the surprise!
The slippers above were double knit using teal and lemon yellow yarn and for the slippers below I used dark purple and lemon yellow. The yarn I used is Stylecraft Special DK and I purchase it on-line at loveknitting.com. They have such a large selection and the yarn is excellent quality.
These slippers are super easy and fast to make.
You can find the pattern here!
Now I’m off to finish an infinity scarf I was asked to make and maybe take a nap! Everyone here at my house has a cold and no one slept well last night! Well, maybe the puppy did!! LOL!!
