A crochet update
I gave my cousin this blanket last week and she sent me this photo that night. It made me very happy and I think Barclay likes his new blanket! It looks like the size is perfect for watching basketball games this winter.
I started the next one. I actually spent about an hour looking for other patterns but in the end I came back to this one. I think it looks great in these yarns. This one isn't designated for anyone yet but it will probably have a home by the time it's done.
I'm pretty close to having this baby quilt done. You can see in the project bag how much yarn is left. The colors in this photo are pretty washed out and the dark spots at the color changes aren't nearly as noticeable as they are in the photo. I have some matching turquoise that I could use as a border but I'll likely leave it the way it is. A friend and I are going to From The Heart Tuesday to deliver some items so I'd like to get this one ready for delivery too.
Over the past couple of weeks I've worked on a few hats and these two are finished and earmarked to be chemo hats.
The blue one is made with Loops and Threads Impeccable Flecks using this BagODay pattern on YouTube.
The pink one is made with Lion Brand Feels Like Butta yarn using the popular Divine hat using the Fiber Spider tutorial.
Once I finish the baby blanket I'm going to get back on this cardigan and get it wrapped up. I haven't touched it since early November and I need to get it finished. I think the next step is the center back. I'll have to get back to the video for the instructions.

Barclay looks very cosy under his blanket. The one you have started in blue looks lovely.

Your cousin looks pretty comfie under his new blanket. I'm sure it will get a lot of use!
