First however I want to share some pictures of my finished poncho:

And here is what I cast on nextMy nephew and his wife are expecting their second child this summer, a baby sister for Leandra. Such happy news, especially since for years they had thought that they could not have children :)
I had knitted a baby blanket for Leandra two years ago : http://ravel.me/Strickliese/h1
and I am making one now for this new member of the family.
I am knitting this blanket in Cascade Avalon which is a Cotton/ Acrylic blend; very soft and easy to take care of. I had treated myself to a summer top in this yarn last year : http://ravel.me/Strickliese/ti
This blanket is a simple chevron blanket in yellow with an occasional white stripe. The pattern is free on ravelry.
|You can find this project on ravelry here: http://ravel.me/Strickliese/cbb|
The ratio between the yellow and white will be 3:1 as I bought three yellow skeins and one white one.
Monday Night Knit Night at The Knitting GarageDon't forget that AL Stickle is open from 6-8pm every Monday for Knit Night. Julie, Beth, Meg and I had fun last Monday especially when Persimmon and Sweet Pea were roused from their sleep to make a special guest appearance.
|You can see the beginnings of Building Block # 6 which I started for the shop (we only have one more to do after that!!!)|
