Different Topic-Dancing w/the Stars


OK...this has nothing to do w/knitting, but so what. It's my blog. Did anyone happen to watch Dancing With The Stars, this past week? Our program in my area had been preempted, because of storm warnings.

What happened to Heather Mills? Why was she voted off of the show? I thought that she was truly amazing that she was able to do all those different dance routines w/an artificial leg.

Baby Gifts Completed-Cabled baby Blanket

I haven't kept in touch with all of you for a while, because....well, I've been busy trying to get these baby items completed.

This is called "Aunt Pearl's Cabled Baby Blanket", a free pattern that I found on the net. I used Lion Brand baby Soft Yarn called "Prints". I really liked using this yarn, because it's really soft & the print pattern of the yarn was nice, because it didn't distract from the cable pattern. The pattern was a lot of fun to work with, because once I had it established it was pretty easy to follow.

This is another free pattern that I found, it's a hooded baby towel & I made a couple of baby size washcloths to go with. I used the popular "Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth" pattern for the washcloths. These were done using Bernat's Cotton Tots. I am really pleased w/this yarn for this project.

Now, that I have these all done...I'm kinda of lost & I'm on a hunt for another project to keep my hands & my mind busy. I think that I'll go have another try at those socks that I started so long ago.
