Another Cushy Baby Blanket

This past week, I decided to make a quick gift for a friend that's having a baby soon. I grabbed a skein of Lion Brand Homespun, and two skeins of Bernat Baby Coordinates and made another Cushy Baby Blanket.

I had to change colors of Homespun yarn, to make sure I had enough, which gave it an interesting look.

So quick and fun. And CUSHY!! :D

Mother's Day Knitting

I was able to finish knitting a few things for my Mom for Mother's Day.

A felted clutch handbag, made with Lion Landscapes yarn.

And a dishcloth & scrubbie set.

She liked them both! :)

Knitting for Charity and Mother's Day

I'm still working on our Oddball Charity Blankets. Right now, I'm focusing on Lapghan #1, which needed surgery. It's looking better every day!

You can read about it on my other blog:

In addition to those projects, I'm trying to make a couple dishcloths and/or towels for Mother's Day. I started a Ballband Dishcloth last night, but had lots of pain in my left arm after just 12 rows. I'll have to take it slow.
