    I'm working a rev HDC border on the white blanket, so it'll be finished today - need to crochet the cross to attach for after its washed. Used Caron Pounder and like how it feels afterwards. Next, I'm going to finish knitting my eclectic scarf with two types of gifted yarn, and make some more baby hats before I start a lapghan. No time frame for anything, just want to keep using stash! Sounds like the ghan is going to be beautiful! Substituting types of yarn is often disappointing to me, too...but companies change their colors so often!

    Ratdog, I like the fact that you made yourself a shawl! And buying the guys stuff is often a better idea. Most women are more apt to appreciate handmade things, in my experience.

    So, i'm about 3/4 finished with a Christening blanket. I'm using the cozy blanket pattern from Attic24. it's so easy to memorize and really gives the blanket some interest. I do need to make more baby hats, then start another lapghan, AND finish the book for book club later this month. The book is quite different: Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman. She lives in Scotland and this is her first novel. The first question to however picked the book is going to be why? It's a Reese Witherspoon Book Club selection. Enjoy the Fall weather, my friends!

    Thanks, MJ! I'm nearly finished with a christening blanket - used the cozy blanket pattern for Attic 24. I like it because it's so repetitive a pattern it's easy to memorize and it gives the single color blanket a bit of interest, too.

    Thanks, Mary Jo! They're very "gentle" colors. Perfect for the intended use, though I think I'll also make some in brighter tones, too. How is everyone doing on Christmas/holiday projects?

    Hi peeps! We don't have much color right now either. Maybe it hasn't been cold enough, long enough. Our zoysia grass has just started going dormant, and that only happens as the weather gets cold. Not much going on. Another day left for PT and I'm officially done - but with things to do at home. This mornings workout ws another good one - I'm exhausted, and my legs are tired. Will sleep good tonight, for sure. Pulling out some white yarn to make another small blanket. I also whipped up some very small baby hats for the NICU, using an E hook😜...need to make some bigger ones next. My neighbor said they could use some really small ones, so i did some of those to start with. Stay cozy my friends.

    Lapghan for a project at church. After it was washed and dried it looked much nicer!

    I finished the lapghan. It's 36 by 42 and looked better after it was washed and dried!
