Perrault Blanket


i've been knitting on the lovely framed baby blanket that i found on Ravelry. i've adjusted the numbers a bit to adjust for a smaller gauge but i just love this blanket. i think i'd like to knit this again in a chunky yarn just to see how fast it would work up. anyway it's for a baby of one of my department managers. it's her first baby and i figured she should have something special to bring the baby home in. she doesn't want to know what she's having so i decided to go with my cream yarn but i left the lacy border on because it's what i liked most about this blanket.
my friend Kristen gave me a great tip about search preferences on Google, which i immediately changed to keep them from just offering search options and all adult content. wish i'd known about that sooner.

the Chose The Right dishcloth

today i was granted access as a designer on Ravelry, and so i've added my chart for the CTR dishcloth to the patterns page. it's been an immediate hit! someone has even added it to their que. my original intention for it was to teach dishcloth knitting this Saturday to some of the sisters in the ward (which i will be doing at about 1pm if anyone is close by and interested in coming over), but i figured i'd add it to the database because i was just surprised that with as many LDS knitters and groups as there are on Ravelry, no one had designed one yet. so now as of a few minutes ago the pattern had only been up for a few hours and already it's been que'd, favorited and commented on. so if anyone is interested in the chart, here it is.
