  6. Just finished a baby blanket for a co-worker who is expecting her first baby. I got the patterns from Leisure Arts "Make One for Baby" and I used Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly yarn. I did not care for the picot border so for the last row I did sc in one st, hdc in one st, 3 dc in one stitch, hdc in one st and repeated that all the way around.

  11. I am making an afghan with RHWL and I love it. I have always been torn between using the original RH yarn and other brands like Simply Soft. I like the stiffness of the original RH. It seems to hold its shape better, especially when making squares, but it is not soft at all. And when I made my last project using RH, the lighter colored yarn was thicker than the darker colors, so the size of my squares wasn't consistent. I also came across several knots in the skein. On the other hand, Simply Soft is so much softer, but so limp and separates easily. So recently I decided to try the RHWL. When I compared the RH with the RHWL at the store, the RHWL was thicker and softer, but not limp like SS. I am using a light color and a dark color for my afghan, and the thickness is the same. I love the way it feels and the squares are working up nicely. I have not finished the afghan, so I haven't laundered it yet. It costs a little more, but it is definitely worth it. Our local Walmart doesn't have a very good selection though, so I guess I will make a trip to Joanns.
