There's always a yarn project running through my head. Sometimes I need to let it out!

Happy Monday!  It's a little overcast today, but that's ok.  A little rain won't hurt my garden.  :)

Speaking of garden, I have five little tomatoes growing already!  I'm so excited.  Hopefully they grow well.  I didn't plant my garden last year because the baby was just born, but two years ago, I had a ton of tomatoes grow, but right before they would ripen, almost all of them would get end rot.  It was very sad.

I listed two new blankets this morning!

This first blanket is the super secret project that I had talked about a few weeks ago!  You can find it here.

I love how it came out.  The ripple pattern adds a nice touch and I love the colors together!!  I'll have to make more with this color combination.  Here's another picture.

And there's this blanket.  Months ago, someone had contacted me about making this blanket, but when I let her know that it was finished, I never heard back!  So I've listed it for sale.

You can find this blanket here.  I actually have a cute brown ribbon with pink polka dots that can be woven around the border.  I think I may add it and take more pictures.

Let me know what you think!

Two-Face Triangle Shawl - Free Pattern Friday

It was a short week, but still so busy!  I've been trying to catch up on work and home.  My garden has been planted and everything is growing beautifully!  I've noticed a few leaves are being eaten though.  I was talking to my neighbor who is a wonderful gardener and she has noticed slugs in her garden and thinks it's the same in mine.  EW!!!  That needs to be remedied.

Anyway....I do have time for another free pattern!!!

Today's free pattern for Free Pattern Friday is Two-Face.  I saw this picture and immediately knew I had to share this.  I love this!  It's such a simple idea, but the look is so bold!

I love the small touch of the lacy holes down the center.  I love the colors that they chose, but this would also be cool in a black and white or light gray and dark gray.  They combinations are endless!
