Baby blanket in progress

I am working on another round baby blanket. It is for a little girl due in the fall. The mother has 2 boys, so this baby is an extra blessing. I am just over halfway finished and the pattern changes 2 times after this. Here is what I have finished. The lighting was off, so the blanket is pink not white. I am using Simply Soft ww yarn that is very soft and pretty.

Newest shawl

I finished another prayer shawl for Creative Hands, a ministry I coordinate at church. It is for Sharon who has several health issues in addition to loosing her brother and a cousin within a week of each other. The yarn is a "ragg" yarn by Bernat in dark green and cream combined. The shawl is 65 x 21 inches.

I am also working on some dishcloths and some squares to be combined into an afhan for families in Kansas that lost everything in the recent tornado.

Baby blanket and some shawls

I made this baby blanket for a shower gift. I loved the way it worked up--very fast--using 2 strands of Bernat Baby Coordinates and a size K hook and creating a gradual change in colors. The pattern was purchased from the Mary Maxim catalog. It is called Peaceful Pastels Afghan. I made it for Crystal who is having her first baby in July-- a girl.

I made this blue prayer shawl for a family member who lost a young adult at the tragic events at Virginia Tech in April.

The pink and white shawl was an exchange item for someone living in Florida. I used cotton yarn for it. It is extra long so she can wrap herself up in it when it gets chilly.
