Baby Granny Afghans

I am still busy cutting fabric, for 2 major projects. (pics coming later, my dining room is a
total disaster, with piles everywhere, and I really hate to have anyone see it like that. My
hands are starting to bother me a bit. Seems like I always worry about carpel when I knit or
crochet, but I never thought cutting fabric would hurt so much.
I found this cute and easy free pattern up on the Red Heart Web Site. HERE. While you
are up there make sure you sign in for one of their 75 years sweepstakes. It's a trip and a
basket of yarn.. Two of my very favorite things.
I have always complained about never winning anything, but not anymore. I was like the
BIGGEST winner over at Bev's. If you haven't visited Bev's then you really must give her
blog a visit. Her Tunisian, crochet and knitting are superb and you can count on her jokes
always cracking me up !! Back in June I won her give-away, a $25 gift certificate to shop
at FiberOptica, the most luscious yarn shop on Etsy. Beautiful hand painted colors. I chose
a skein of Hand Painted Sock Yarn - in Rockin' Rose, a gorgeous color. I wanted to do a
shawl, so I ordered a second skein just in case. You can never run out when it's something
special like hand painted yarn.

What a gorgeous colour that yarn is. I can't wait to see it made up.

Lovely blankets as well. Grannies are just so cosy somehow.

Love those baby afghans. You have been busy with those. And that yarn you picked out is gorgeous. Have you picked out a pattern to use for the shawl? I have been thinking about making another shawl lately too. I love making them.

Barbara, your baby blankets are so beautiful. I'm in awe of your talent for colors and workmanship. Always perfect in every sense. I'm glad you chose the beautiful sock yarn. That is going to be GORGEOUS. Can't wait to see it.
