A Few Finished Objects

First, a great shot of a small business I caught a while back on the way to a job interview in South OKC. I just couldn't resist. I was driving so the pic is not the best, but hilarious nonetheless. Can you see the small print in the sign that says "Same Day Service?"


The first blanket was made for some friends of ours who are due soon. I used Yarn Bee Luscious for the body and Yarn Bee (something else, can't remember what) for the border.

The final two are, finally, my 63 SQUARES GHAN!!! I've been working on this thing since November and it took over a month to join the thing. But I was so glad when I was finished! I love how it turned out. Thanks so much to the girls in the Crochetville CAL for all the support. It was fun, girls!

In other fibery news, I gave in and got the Green Gable pattern. Everyone is making one and I thought it would be a good segway into knitting wearables. A quick trip to Carol's for some Cotton Fleece and I was well on my way. I am now almost done! Wahoo! Just have a few rows of ribbing around the body and finishing on the sleeves and I'll be done.

Hi Quirky!

All the hard work you put into your 63 Squares afghan paid off! It's beautiful! It looks spectacular in those colors. Doesn't it feel wonderful to have it all done?

I happened upon your blog when I googled for ideas to use some of the Yarn Bee yarn that I got on sale the other day.

I absolutely love the pink baby blanket! I can already imagine a little girl cuddling up with it.
