 I started the feather and fan blanket.
Thanks again Valarie for the cotton. 
I'll break today for socks.  
I have to behave and knit only a bit at a time with cotton. 
Feather and Fan is about the only lace pattern that gets along with me.  Consistently. 

This is a throwback photo that we found while organizing and putting photos on flashdrive.  
Baby Zach with our neighbor Dan.  
It has been wonderful looking back. 
I put a light zippered top on this morning and saw I had hung a stitch marker on the zipper. 

I'm in the mood for a little swap. 
Brainstorming on this one....

Feel like a little swap with no yarn included?
Say stitchmarkers,  edibles and a gizmo?

What a cutie! Little chubby baby arms are one of God's great gifts.

I am ALWAYS up for a swap!

Your son was an adorable little guy. I'll see what kind of swap you plan before I decide. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I'm up for a swap!

Feather and Fan is one of my favorite stitch patterns. I'm knitting a purple scarf right now in f & f - and it is making me happy!

It's funny how you forget about some photos and then when you see them, WOW!

The swap sounds like it could be fun. :-)

A swap sounds like fun - I'm game! Cute picture.

You cannot go wrong with feather and fan. I want to knit a blanket of one as one of my ol' knitting group mates used to always be knitting a charity one. Depending upon the swap's timeframe I could possibly join in.

Oh my gosh .... Zach certainly was a little blondie. He doesn't look to sure about being held by his friend. LOL

Betsy said...

Oh my goodness Zack was a cutie! And I like your feather and fan blanket it's coming along very nicely.
Blessings, Betsy

Great photo! They grow up way too fast, don't they? That will be a lovely blanket! I made a cowl with that pattern and was amazed that the 2 ends fit together perfectly, making it east to sew together. "Define gizmo" please.;>)

Oh my goodness what a sweet, sweet picture! I love it. so cute. Geez it goes so fast. Your blanket is growing quickly and looks good in that cotton. I have found another lace pattern that doesn't make me insane (on worsted weight yarn) for a blanket and it's making me happy too :)

I think feather and fan is the most perfect stitch pattern!

I love the feather and fan blanket you've started!!

I'm having feather and fan envy right now. I've been having a miserable time trying to knit socks in it. It's just not cooperating at all. I love the look just can't get what I'm doing wrong and it sounds like I'm the only one having a problem with the pattern! Sigh!

Delighted Hands said...

Very pretty knitting and so quickly, too. (No swap for me at this time, thanks tho)

Your feather and fan is looking fantastic. I have yet to try this pattern but I think I might be ready.
