Finished and Stitching With Colors!

     I can finally post a picture of the finished baby afghan.  The shower was Sunday and a very nice shower it was.  Beautiful color theme and lots of great people there.  Amanda and Josh got so many beautiful gifts for baby Olive.  The


pink was actually a lot brighter than it looks here.  My previous post will show the true color far better.  The pattern is much clearer here though.  I enjoyed making this, but I am very pleased to be back working with all my different colored threads.
     An order of threads came yesterday and I now have them all bagged and marked.  


Working with them as well.


       Bill has his 21 treatment this morning, and he's doing a fantastic job.  Gets tired, but other than that, his body is staying strong and he's looking real good.  He has started taking more time for himself in this last month and it has helped him a lot.  Today the both of us will have another Yoga lesson, and they have helped us both.   

I need to let you all go for now.  I've been trying to get back and stay on track with my blogging.  I love posting and hearing from my dear friends and followers.  You all take care and be well, and once again, "Don't forget to feel the colors".

  1. Well, that baby blanket is beautiful. I haven't knitted anything for quite awhile. Maybe I should pick up some yarn and get busy.

    Have fun with all your new threads.

    1. Thank you so much. It was an easy pattern. This is the time of year when knitting is soothing I think. It's cold outside and a nice throw over your lap inside feels good. The piece you're knitting up adds a little more warmth.

    1. Good news Roo. The pattern is from DMC and it's free. I used the colors that I wanted. All were over dyed threads. It worked up quickly. Here is the chart.
