I finished the second baby blanket! I expect that I have enough yarn to make another.
I used the same color sequence as the first blanket. It finished 35" x 38"
The pattern is the Crochet Ripple Baby Boy Blanket from Daisy Farm Crafts. It's all double crochet stitches done in sets of 3. Their patterns are really well written and there are excellent video tutorials.
The color yarns are Brava Worsted from KnitPicks and the white is Lion Brand Basic Stitch. They are pretty much indistinguishable, very soft and easy to work with. They wash great too.
I didn't do any sewing but I got out my brand new ruler and marked blocks for sewing.
I got all of the rest of the block sets marked and ready for sewing. I'll work on them at home. Today we are going for one more hike on Beech Mountain and then heading out.
Yesterday we did a 5 mile walk on a series of Carriage Trails. The nice thing about Carriage Trails is that you don't have to watch for trip hazards, you can look at the scenery. You only have to watch for the cyclists. About 90% of them are on e-bikes.
The trails were Aunt Betty Pond and Eagle Lake.
We saw some beautiful autumnal color.
There's a section where the trail crosses back and forth over a stream over 6 bridges. It's very picturesque even though the walk is all uphill in this section.
Here are a couple of other photos taken on the walk.
We've had a great week and we're ready to head home. I'll check back in on Monday.
