Progress Update (including a Give-Away!)

If you are reading my blog, you might be curious about what happened to these projects:

I don't think I took a picture of this piece after it was stitched. If I did, I don't know what I did with it!

Water Under the Bridge

And then there is this:

Remember my "ripple" blanket? I bet you thought I stuffed it in the UFO box. It started out as a project to use up my $2 thrift store bag of yarn (the hot pink) and now I am buying yarn for it every time I turn around! Talk about false economy. It now measures 50" wide x40" long. I guess I will keep going until it is at least 60" long.

Maybe you remember this?

This is the multi-colored pencil roving I bought and then couldn't manage to spin. No matter what I tried, it constantly came apart. Finally I core spun it and the chain plied it. It was such a frustrating process that I am NOT in love with this yarn at the moment. Maybe later....

And then here is the piece that you have seen in the In Work portion of my blog page:

I wasn't happy with the center section, so I cut it out and added a piece of mono printed fabric instead. I am still not sure about it. What do you think?

And finally, for the comedy portion of this posting:

Right, another Milk Bone notebook. So here is what I think. I have never done a
"give-away" and I think it would be fun. So if you would like a Milk-Bone, duct tape notebook, write me a comment telling me why you like it and I will send them out to 3 randomly selected people. There I did it. That wasn't so hard!

I'm madly in love with that ripple blanket!
And I would indeed like to have a Milkbone notebook :) Throw my name in the hat, please.

Oops, I accidentally left that comment under my husband's name for some reason. He'd probably really like that notebook too, but probably be less in love with the blanket on account of he's manly and all ;)

What's a Milkbone notebook? I love the idea of it, and would love to win it.
And thanks for coming by my blog!

I love Ripple blankets. One day I'd like to do one, if my wrists allow it.
