I started this blanket back in July, but assumed I had enough yellow to finish. Never assume you have enough because of course I didn't. I looked at Wal-Mart and JoAnn's with no luck. They didn't even have the brand I had been using! So I went online to JoAnn's and found it. It was gonna be a little more expensive than buying it at the store, but I needed it. When I went to order it, the shipping was $6! So almost $10 to order this skein from the internet. I bought another yellow, but the color wasn't even close. I was in Frankfort earlier this month and went with Mom & Dad to the Senior center. They have a craft room and sell fabric, yarn, thread, etc. so I started shopping. Would you believe that I found the exact yellow I needed?!? How cool is that!! So now the blanket is finished and ready to be shipped. It is yellow & purple with a yellow & white border. It is 27" square and costs $40-no shipping. Message me soon-I don't think this adorable blanket will last!!!

I thought this would be overwhelming, but I find myself more and more excited every day. I am grateful to everyone who has placed an order and hope that you are loving your special creations. I have gotten some interest in classes, but none have started yet. I will be charging $15 per hour for classes in knit, crochet, or quilt. I am willing to drive an hour around the Chattanooga area. For my friends & family in KY, I will be there Aug 15-18 for whoever is interested. And as always I will be there for Christmas. I have learned a new scarf pattern and have one available for purchase. It is officially call a loopy scarf, but I like to call it a floopy scarf. The price is $20 and it can be made with any colors or types of yarn. Let me know what you think!!
