At Last!

Using US6 needles, I cast on 225 sts.  I knit up 6 skeins of Sinfonia sport weight 100% mercerized cotton.  It measures approx. 45"x46".  This is to go to Comforts from the Heart along with some pink satin blanket binding to be sewn along the edge.  So very happy to have this one off of the needles.  This is blanket #3 for 2013.

Finishing Up

Have these two skeins to finish working up this cotton blanket that's been years in the making.  It's a bit tedious so it's perfect knitting for Lent.  I sent 72 preemie hats to a young gal in California who has a KAL on Ravelry.  She asked those that wanted to to donate preemie hats for her senior year service project.  I was so happy to participate so that I could use up my wool yarn as the local hospitals prohibit its use.  Praying for our dear Pope and the Church.  May God have mercy on us all!!
Getting ready to get some more snow this week.  Don't mind it as long as I don't have to get out in it.
God bless you for stopping by!
