We'll get started on a new batch in about a month or so. I'm starting to think up ideas for new ones.

It's good to put your thinking cap on!
Also, it will be nice to start up again.

Here's the latest picture of Spearmint Twist. It went into the mail this morning. I think it is a very cheerful blanket.

Spearmint Twist arrived today!
Thanks Kris for the wonderful tape measure - it's so cute!

I'll get started right away on this beautiful blanket - I LOVE the colors!

I just realized I'm adding the last section to the blanket and I've never done that before. There may be instructions on here somewhere, but am I suppose to bind it off before sending it to the border person? Then do I get to keep the needles and start a new blanket (I'm willing to do so, if that's normal)?

Please go ahead and bind off. You can hold onto the needles and start a new blanket if you want. Just let me know! I can send you an instruction sheet for whatever type you choose to cast on for (DK or worsted).

Thanks!

I just finished Busy Baby Bee...I have to admit that the stitch almost got the best of me...I had to frog it twice before I got the hang of it. But it is a very pretty stitch....I have to admit. Not sure I'll try much more than 4 inches of it though.

Here's the latest picture of it.

Kris - don't feel bad, I had to do the same and get advice from the others when I had Busy Baby Bee. I've been practicing it making the dishcloths that the pattern came from because I like the stitch and want to be able to use it again sometime.

I really do like the stitch, I just never really got a rhythm going. I had to really pay attention to the count. Maybe because I could never "see" the pattern form like I can on a rib stitch. But I think it makes a precious baby blanket. Snuggly.
