wow this is the model i had made for plymouth yarn, i found it in the patternworks catalog, its made out of encore worsted weight yarn. very easy and fun to make with the self striping yarn.
also worked more on the counted cross stitch lighthouse picture, think c. gave me like 3 of them-they were probably free samples she had received from a crafters club. had greg blow up the directions so i could see the differences between the reds.

the wrap around sweater, it shows the seed border. now realize the 2 fronts are just about as wide as back as they cross over in the front so it's gonna be a long process to just finish that up.
have 8 irish lace squares done, am thinking i probably have enough for an afghan or 2 shawls, not decided what i'll do as i've done one of each of those allready.

Here is a picture of what I've been working on lately. Light blue booties for the hospital, they resemble a long mitten, but they fold em up about 3 times over so they won't slip off the infants hands (so they dont' screatch theirselves) and/or on their feet.
Also notice a picture of a yellow and white coaster. Its' one from annies daily site that i saved and thought i'd best get to making some of them. Also the gray barbie doll clam basket and rake and clams. It's for an ongoing book I'm making with my designs of just Barbie doll things, NOT only clothes but a lot of accessories.
Above picture shows fan and feather pattern for theis infant afghan. I also have made a layette from it, for an order I received from Ziegler Magazine for the Blind. It's called TLC from Coats and Clark (red heart) baby /sport weight 5 oz sizes. Bought at least 7 not thinking/realizing they are that big, was assuming all ombres are only 3- 3 1/2 oz. So I might have a bunch left over. If so i'll make another outfit and put that in my moms shop to sell on the island or the craft show. Its called baby pritn and is mainly white but have some spots of the baby colors.
