Good afternoon! I hope everyone had a great St. Patty's day! I did not wear green yesterday, but I did not really go anywhere either. I had SNB this past Saturday and I was impatiently waiting for a yarn delivery from the mail man. I checked the mail 4 times before it finally made it at 2 pm. I ordered yarn to make a "Reverse Pinwheel Blanket" for Alexxis (my newest grand daughter on the way). I wanted to add a ruffle to this blanket, so I modified the pattern a little. This little modification caused me to cast on 820 stitches....yup....820:
After SNB, I went to the deer lease with my boyfriend and it was very relaxing. I was able to knit a lot more than I expected. I knit 6 rows of 820 stitches, then did a k2tog around the entire row to give me 420 stitches, and now I am going to follow the eyelet pattern. I have knit almost a whole skein so far:
Other than those two items, I knitted a little on a sweater I started almost 3 years ago for Celeste. I do not have pics (yet) but I hope to post a picture of it finished really soon.
I went to a local grocery store and found these tiny oranges that I had seen commercials for. They are called "Lil Cuties" and I thought I would give them a try......they are AWESOME and Antonio loves them!
Lastly, I leave you with a picture of the sunset at the deer lease from this past weekend. I LOVE sunsets!
Happy Monday everyone and Happy Knitting!
