Baby Blanket

Pattern: http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/babyblanket.shtm
Yarn: Fantasy Naturale 100% Mercerized Cotton in color 6399
Needles: Size 7 circulars
Notes: Do not do this pattern in cotton. I found trying to work with the yarnovers and SSSKs in a yarn with so little give to be a really unpleasant experience. I also ended up using substantially more yarn than anticipated. I think I could have avoided that if I'd used an acrylic instead.

Market Squares Bag

It's been a busy spring and summer, but I'm finally getting caught up. I finished this bag in Feb. or March and started using it immediately and forgot to record the details. So, when in WY/SD this past week, we stopped in the Black Hills and got a photo of it.
