A day of rest
Our friend left today as we decided that it would be a good day to rest although I did eventually take a long walk just in the neighborhood. I decided to get the computer out for this post. I'll use the mobile app but it's really crap. Hopefully my spelling is better on this post.
I've been working on this blanket a little each day and now it's done! The yarn is Lion Brand Mandala in color Narnia and I used 2 balls. It's the second blanket I've made in this color. I used the crochet blanket stitch and I think I chained 115 stitches. Next time I'd make it a little bit narrower, maybe something in the 90's.
I'm making good progress on the flying geese veterans quilt. All the blocks are done and I expect to have it finished tomorrow. Chris will be gone all day tomorrow on a fishing trip so after a long kayak in the lake I'll have the day to myself to finish this and maybe start the last set of veterans quilts. They are very simple rail fence blocks.
I also started a swatch for my next baby blanket. I'm trying to decide on the best hook size. The pattern is this one from Daisy Farm Crafts. I do love that website. The patterns are accurate and clear and the videos are excellent. I think working with this yarn is going to be interesting.

I will be interested to hear your thoughts on the baby velvet. I have been hesitant to get it for weaving as it looks as if it would be slippery.

The blanket is so pretty! I can't believe you got all the flying geese blocks done! You are working awfully hard on your vacation! Have a wonderful trip around the lake.

Your blanket turned out so pretty! A baby is going to love those bright colours. And I'm going to be interested in hearing a review on the new yarn - it looks as though it would be so cuddly but I wonder how it works up.
