Just checking in...

I have been so busy, no time for blogging it seems.
I have been doing a small amount of knitting but not within the last few weeks!
This is the sailboat & cables baby blanket I revamped from a Debbie Macomber pattern in The Shop on Blossom Street. The design in the book is worked in strips and all seamed together, of course something I'm not a fan of!! So I redesigned the baby blanket using my own cable, borders and her sailboat. This is the start, you can see I'm just beginning the second sailboat. The yarn is Red Heart TLC Essentials in Medium Lake Blue.

The other project I have going is a pretty crochet baby layette set called Pastel Shells, see only one sleeve is completed. I had to put this down to do some requested potholders, towel hangers and hot pads as christmas gifts. Which are all delivered and I have no picture!!!!

anyway, back to hustle and bustle of packing,hubby and I will travel to Virginia for Christmas with DD and SIL, our youngest daughter will meet us from Florida, it will be wonderful!! This will be my first christmas out of New York state.
I sure hope this finds everyone doing well and enjoying your holidays!!

When I first retired from work, I took up knitting and your blog was the first one I discovered.
I have been enjoying your blog for some time and have learned a lot just from reading it.
I absolutely love what you have done with the sailboat/cable pattern. I have the original pattern but it is not so appealing as yours is. I don'tcare for the large size sailboats at all.

Will you possibly be sharing the details of your changes? Since I am a new knitter, it is beyond my ability to fiigure it all out on my own.
