Finally got the other Soothing Ripples Baby Afghan done. The first one took 10 days, this one took almost a month, but the baby isn't due until Winter.
I used the Bernat Baby Sport yarn in the White and the Green that was left over from my 1st Soothing Ripples baby afghan.
And, I bought the yellow yarn in Bernat Baby Softee. Very soft, it kind of reminds of Caron's Simply Soft.
If you haven't guessed, this is one of my favorite afghan patterns. It only consist of 2 rows; a pattern row that consist of knits and YO's, more knits and K2tog's. The next row is a purl row.
We recently got Netflix, so this has been a good TV/Movie watching project to do. I've been staying inside with the AC and getting caught up on some movies that I've been wanting to see. I like old movies, like the old Road shows, and I finally got to see Pay it Forward (very good!) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, as much as I like Brad Pitt, I thought that this movie was just weird, too weird.
Now, for another knitting project. I don't know whether or not to finish one of my many WIPs or cast on something new.
I vote for casting on something new. Maybe a baby sweater or socks....I'm sort of in the mood to knit some socks.

It's been a busy, but nice weekend. I didn't get as much knitting done as I would have liked. Sat., we had the usual family errands and busy stuff to do, then, on Sun., our oldest daughter and her husband had their marriage validated in the Byzantine Catholic Church.
It was a very nice ceremony and it was a beautiful church and a very nice time with our daughter's extended family, the in-laws. BTW, they are the warmest and nicest people we have ever met. They love our daughter as their own and we feel the same about our son-in-law.
In my last post, I mentioned about my e-mail being bombarded with Christmas ads. Granted, I subscribed to received the ads and newsletters, sometimes, this is what you have to do in order to get free patterns. But, really....
I just got this one tonight:
It says: "28 Christmas Afghans: Start Now"
Then for good measure, there's even a Christmas count down in the middle of the page.
