Finished Victorian Lace Scarf for my mother-in-law

I made a light, lace scarf for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. She really liked it. I'm happy with how it turned out and I love the drape, but I'm not a fan of the yarn itself. It was annoying picking the bits of hay out of the yarn. Anyway, here it is!

Debbie Macomber likes my Pioneer Top!!!

Yesterday, Chris & I were at a Debbie Macomber book signing. She is an avid knitter and one of my mother-in-law's favorite authors. Since she was in town, we went down there to get a signed book for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I was wearing my pioneer top and a blue cami. I took this picture earlier in the day for my sister.

Anyway, when it was our turn to get the book signed, she immediately asked me if I had knit my sweater myself. I was surprised and said "Acutally, yes I did! It's my first sweater!" and then her & her assistant said that I did a wonderful job and must be a natural. I am just over the moon that someone like her noticed my top and thought I did a great job.

Baby blanket for Chanthida and Brad!

Here is the baby blanket I made for Brad and Chanthida. I started it on Monday and the baby shower was Saturday. I finished it 20 minutes after the baby shower was scheduled to start. I really like this pinwheel pattern but next time I will order 60" circular needles and give myself more time.
