Yarn Along

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!!

Joining up with Ginny for another link party!

  3. Lovely blanket! Gorgeous rug! I need to check out Elizabeth Berg's books today while I am at the library. Thanks for the recommendation! :)

  4. Pretty blanket. I really hate when a pattern is not well written. I hope you can figure it out as it will be quite lovely when finished. I will have to add that book to my reading list. I don't know this author.
