Joe's Blanket

Yarn: Walmart Mainstay & Red Heart Super Saver Solids

Can't remember when I started this, but I found it lurking in the back ground of all the 'stash' and figured I better finish it.

Easy TV project, no brainer! Acrylic is not my favorite but will be perfect for a bed throw that will need heavy washing from a young man...

7/16/10 Finished!!

Sweet Little Nothing

Yarn Berroco Ultra Alpaca

6/29/10 Cast on

7/1/10 Finished, sweet little pattern! Only modificatio was to knit garter stitch instead of ribbing and to (knit first and last five stitches) while knitting this top down, saves me trouble of having to go back and add ribbing up the center opening.
