I finished this scarf today. This is one of my personal favorite scarf designs. I love all the colors. This I knitted. This blanket I am making I am using the "baby ripple" blanket posted on Attic24. Thanks again Lucy!!! This ripple blaket was inspired by Lucy's beautiful creations at Attic24, but for some reason I used a different pattern than the one she has posted to create this blanket. This snowflake pattern I got from the Martha Stewart website. I used a larger needle and yarn and I guess that is why it is so large. It is about an 8" diameter. I placed a tape dispenser beside it so you could see how large it is. I thought it would be pretty on a large tree or haning in your windows. I also glittered my snowflakes when I starched them.
I am a mom of three beautiful children ages 14,13, and 9. I also work full time. I stay very busy with my family that also inculdes a busy husband that teaches and coaches. Our family is always struggling trying to balance work, school, church, and extra curricular activities. We live in Smalltown America, so many of the activities the children are involved in requires us to travel long distances, otherwise they would not have the opportunity to participate in many of the things they do. One of the trade offs of living in a remote area of the country.
I hope you enjoy your visit. I started this blog more for my enjoyment than to have other people read it. It is more of a diary of my life, which often gets too busy for me to blog about. I use it to say things about my family and express my thoughts on things I love and enjoy.
