Upcoming Craft Shows

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!!!!

It's been 2 weeks of working 2-3 hours a day on my daughter's blanket, and I'm halfway there!! I think it looks awesome, and she is sooooo thrilled with it, I gotta finish it soon!!

Scrap Yarn Blanket

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!
