The Baby Drops Blanket is a work in progress. I put off knitting this pattern for a very long time because the directions scared me. I don't find the Drops' patterns very well written. So I read and re-read this pattern until I thought I was very comfortable with the instructions. I did fine until the second section. A lot is left to assumption. Maybe I have now become enough of an accomplished knitter to figure it out, but it took a lot of frogging to make that happen. I do think it is going to be lovely. The Pima cotton is, of course, a dream to knit with.
I have loved just about everything Elizabeth Berg has written. This is not a new book, but new to me finding it.
And that rug.... don't you love the color? My daughter Caitlin is making a move and doesn't want to travel with her rug. This is the one splurge she made in Istanbul last summer. So 2 weeks ago when I went to visit she said, " Mother, could you keep my rug for a while?" " Of course sweetheart....
of course" :)
Pop over to Drawstrings to see a couple of cute bags that were monogrammed for Easter. Thanks Julie!!
