Works in progress
I’ve started a Moderne baby blanket for one of my co-workers whose wife is due in May. She was also Ian’s teacher at school last year. Our family is liking the blankie so much that I might have to make one to have as a throw at home. This seems to be a theme – making great things and giving them away! I didn’t use baby colors hoping that this will be a blankie that will last the baby well into his or her college years.
I have also been working on my lace pillow the last couple of weekends. I’ve got a little more than 26 inches of my Downton lace edging. I think I’d like to make enough to edge a hanky. I also copied the pattern and am starting to work on the pricking for my ‘s Gravenmoer fan. I hope to get the bobbins wound today so I can take it to lace night tomorrow.
