  1. Beautiful blue.

    1. Thank you!

    2. Well, I knit because it makes me happy. I love the yarn, I love sencihrag for patterns, I love to start with string and sticks and end up with something grand. I love making things for other people and seeing how happy it makes them, especially baby things.Yarn, it is an addiction. I have lots of it, and will always want more. I will never knit all that I have, but that’s ok with me. I love to see it all nice and pretty in the cabinet my husband built for me.Yarn is fab.

  2. These look great! I’ve actually got one that needs finiihsng. Do you want to finish it for me? Just kidding. I made a few baby blankets with a double crochet, then a chain, dc, ch, repeat with super fluffy yarn.
