Yes, I finally have pictures! Not many, and not very good quality, but they're here. I went outside, for more natural light, and there were about 40 or 50 birds feeding at the THREE feeders we have... They all looked hungry, so I wanted to get out of there ASAP. Not only did I not want the birds to poop on my stuff, I didn't want to be on the bird's wrong end when it took off, that's one of my worst fears...

Anyway, this is what I have been up to.

I ended up frogging the Yellow Star cloth. I wasn't the biggest fan of the pattern, and I couldn't keep track of where I was. I;m going to try to find an other star pattern somewhere, and make a couple of those.

This is the striped baby blanket. Pink Lemonade and Cloud. It's soooo soft and squishy, just like the one made in the Breeze colourway.The stripes are kind of hard to see, so here's a better picture. It's just over a foot long, and I love knitting it. I'm really enjoying the yarn I chose for the baby blankets. This is number One of my Three blankets I want to have finished. I also have the Creamsickle one cast on, so that's number Two.

Sideways, but here's the Breeze blanket. 23x23 inches, ends still not woven in (obviously, I wait till craft show days to do that!). I'm planing on selling them at the show, unless an other one of my cousins has a baby in the near future!

Can you block cotton? Because the Heart Cloth needs it! I'm thinking I might eliminate this pattern. I'm still on the fence about it. The one I made before the last craft show was sold to my friend's mother... So, I'm not sure if she actually wanted it, or if she was just supporting!

The Mystery Cloth! It's more or less seed stitch on one side, and stockinette on the other. I really like it! nice and soft on the ST side, and scrubby enough on the seed side. I would use it for a face cloth

I have a few of Grandma's Favourite made. I'm going to start making them a little larger than I have been.
I have one more of the Ribbon cloths in the works right now. That is by far my favourite pattern. Cancer is something that has touched many people close to me, and, although it's not much, I feel like I'm doing my part.
