I was like a little kid waiting for Santa Claus last night...I must have gotten up to look out the window four times at least all night long looking to see it the snow had fallen as the weather people predicted it would. It was raining. It may have been hailing for all I know, but there was no white stuff falling from the sky. And this morning after the rains stopped the sun came out and dried up the walkways. This was my view from our front door! Disappointment, sigh! Well, Friday is a non-work day for me and I was excited to be home and to be able to continue knitting on the baby blanket. I hope this is what "knitting in the round" is supposed to look like, as I have never done it before! I am following directions; however, my corners are not coming out well...I have to slip the marker, which I finally realize (after being told) that it goes from one needle to the other, and NOT to be tied onto a stitch...but my increases and knit stitches on the pearl side don't seem to be leaving my markers in the corners when I come round the next time. ????? I figure the baby won't know the difference so I am not too worried about it!
You can see the beginning of the off white first stripe that goes around the nine heart squares. And the cross stitching done between squares that I did a day or so ago.
Later I will put a back on the "wrong side" to cover those loose strands of yarn.
and I have plans for making some soft felted buttons for the corners of the squares!
This will take up many an evening to come. Henry is basking in the sun coming in the window.
for the next color palette at the 3creative studios color palette challenge
and fairly quickly threw together this little art journal quilt. The top layer is a sheer with sequins over satin (black)
followed by a cotton print
followed by more sheer and
some blue flannel.
(colors: black, varying shades of blue, yellow/gold.)

of silks from India. The sparkle does not show well in the photos. Just
take my word for it!
Now, back to knitting! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
I wonder if we are really going to get snow?
