Hawkeye Blanket

Using I Love This Yarn in the yellow and black sparkle colorways and the usual US6 dpn and circulars, this blanket measures approx. 33" in diameter. This is in the box to be delivered to The Preemie Project in Iowa.
I'm currently knitting on the burial buntings to be delivered to our local St. Johns Hospital, and on my dear hubby's vest.
This year has gone by so very swiftly so far. I think after I finish Norm's vest and the buntings that I may take the time to just finish up what I have on the needles already and then work on some hats. I'd like to take a bit of time to do one cross stitch project too. The way things are going it may be early next year before I'm through with all those projects;~D

With A Little Shimmer

Using Plymouth Yarn Dreamin', Red Heart Shimmer, and Bernat Baby Sport; this round blanket measures approx. 38" in diameter. I used the usual US6 dpn and circulars. You may be able to see the little bit of shimmer from the Red Heart. This is a sweet little blanket for some sweet little girl.
*ps. I won the 40% off coupon at Simply Fibers which I promptly took advantage of. Ohhhh the wonderful yarns:~D So I'm stocked up with yarn for a good long while.
*pps. I've got Norm's vest on the needles and have knit up about a dozen burial buntings. I've got buttons for 17 boys and 17 girls burial buntings. Want to get the knitting out of the way before sewing on the buttons.
*** Need to get another round blanket off the needles soon and off to The Preemie Project by mid October.
Goodbye and God Bless until next time:~D

40 Cloths

In honor of Our Lady's birthday I donated 40 cloths with Ivory soap to our local American Red Cross for their comfort kits.
Also made a donation of several blankets and some baby hats to our local Newborns In Need.
Dropped by Simply Fibers to knit and chat with all the Thursday ladies:~D
Working on some pumpkin hat/bootie sets, some burial buntings, a couple of round blankets and a rectangular one as well. Knitting night and day...very happily thank you:~D
