I've still been working feverishly on my daughter's blanket, but it seems to be shrinking, not getting bigger! It stretches and makes me think I'm farther along then I am, still have 10 inches to go!
I'm also gearing up to do some shows this year, maybe a show a month, so if you are in the Virginia/DC area, here's where I'll be:
April 24th- New Hanover Christian School"s Spring Fling 2-5 pm (Mechanicsville, VA)
May 8th- Linden Volunteer Fire Department's Spring Bazaar- 9-4pm (Linden, VA)
June 6th- Ashland's Strawberry Faire- 10-5pm (Ashland, VA)
Come out and support your local artists!!!!

Here's my latest project- a fun scrap yarn blanket that will be for my daughter's new twin bed.
All I did was cast on 150 stitches, and I'm just knitting the garter stitch with a new yarn each row, with a fringe edge that will go along the side of the bed. It's fun and I can't possibly get bored because I'm always looking ahead to see what color to do next! What a great way to use up your leftover yarns! It's been taking me about 10-15 minutes each row, so who knows how long this one will take me?- Wish me luck, only 7 more feet to go!

Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been working on some custom projects, a custom bottle cap bracelet, and a tropical mural for a friend's daughter's wall... Also had my son's 4th birthday party in there for 14 kids!! Now I'm working on knitting a cool blanket for my daughter's new twin size bed, pics to come later .....
