New Project, 2 WIP Finished

The newest project started last evening is this, a scarlet & gray baby ripple for a friend whose son & dil are expecting their first baby this Spring. They are huge Ohio State fans.

 
This is a simple pattern that I have done many times in the past. It makes up fairly quickly. I am using Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn. It is nice and soft and so much better than the scratchy RH. 

I did finish up 2 of the WIP I was doing. The first is the scrappy granny using the join as you go method. Just like a picture, a blanket needs a border to frame it and I did a couple rows of black and then a shell stitch in gold Vanna yarn. I was going to make it bigger, but my supply of yarn was growing smaller with less color choices. I refused to buy more yarn. 

 
I am all about using up scraps, and this was an excellent way to do just that.

 

Would I do this pattern again, why certainly! It is super fun and another fast project. 


I have to apologize for this photo. Even with the flash on and the lights it looks kinda yellow, when in fact the blanket is snow white. Had it not been cold and rainy outside I would have gotten a better quality picture. 


Now for the real beauty, one of 4 Christmas Cacti I bought this past week. Our Kroger store was a blaze of color with the display in their floral section. I just couldn't resist. I hope it hasn't come to my house to wither and die. I seem to have a heavy hand when it comes to the watering can
