on my needles and my hook

The skirts are slow going. Since I’m not following a pattern I have free reign, and decided to do the purl ribbing after every six rows of knitting. At one point I actually thought about frogging it so I could make the entire skirt like that…thankfully I came to my senses.

I decided to work on a project that I could finish quickly, so I grabbed some chunky yarn and a crochet hook to make the girls blankets for their dolls.

This blanket took a few hours. Kiah said she didn’t want one because she found a bigger one that was already done, but if I can make her a big one with the same yarn as the small blanket then she’ll take it. That girl.

I’m loving One Summer by David Baldacci. Picked it up last Wednesday, and I’ve had to make myself put it down several times! I just love books that grab you right from the start. Even though it’s fiction, David has me thinking about my own life…. my priorities, miracles, and about the intense love I have for my family. Only 1/4 of the book left. I’m anxious to see how it ends.
