I have a new project to share this week for Ginny's Yarn Along. I know what you are thinking, Paula really doesn't need a new project. But next week I'll share with you the reason why I needed to start this project.
This is a really cool version of an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern (big surprise I know). It's a blanket made from the centre out and with short row corners. I really love the way it is knitting. I could see making a lot of these :) And yes, those balls are the same colour/dye lot. They were just wound from different spots in the colour pattern. If I was using these for socks I would have picked two balls that looked more matched. But for this pattern it doesn't matter.
I'm reading a sewing book, Sewing Clothes Kids Love: Sewing Patterns and Instructions for Boys' and Girls' Outfits. Ella would absolutely love anything in this book. It also shows how I'm not creative. A creative person would look at a book like this and think of all the wonderful things they could make. I look at it and see pictures to copy and wonder how I will ever find material like the picture.
