Getting close

It's been asked of me when this afghan is going to be released. I am currently collaborating with my friend Theresa on testing and finishing touches, so I'm hoping to get it ready to go by May. Probably late May.

But! Progress!  Woohoo! I have finally started on the border.  I just can't even begin to tell you what I've been through trying to find a border pattern that speaks to me, but hasn't been done a bazillion times.

I'm getting more and more excited about this pattern the more progress that's made. You will have lots of options for this fun, little afghan! 😀

Making progress

Happy Easter!

In the last few days I have been knitting diaper soaker and adding rows to my new afghan.

The pink soaker comes from "The Expectant Knitter" by Marie Connolly. Lovely little pattern. I use Lion Brand Wool-Ease so they are easy care. I would love to make some in I Love This Cotton, because they would make terrific baby bloomers or shorts in the Summer.

I am working on a blue pair that I have to make for a size 8 boy who is autistic. I have had the hardest time finding a pattern already made. I was trying to modify a 1938 pattern to work for me, but lack of instruction caused me to get confused and very unhappy with it. I am thinking I may need to just wing this one following the principles that I do know about shaping soakers. Good luck to me. If you know of an already created pattern....please, let me know!

Let's hope this helps

I put the blogger app on my phone in hopes that it will help me be a better blogger.

I have two new patterns on the horizon. One is a new afghan. I am looking at creating it in both baby and adult sizes. The other is a new Savannah inspired toy bag. I have included sneak peeks of both.

Currently,  I am finishing up a couple orders. So, my fun stuff waits.
