A lovely customer wants to crochet a maize and blue blanket with a big block M in the middle for her son who will be attending there this Fall. Gary approved these colors, so I feel confident they are right on the money.
Once upon a time I was placing navy and yellow on a white skein, and of course the two colors blended and I got a maize and blue and green and white skein of yarn. I gotta do that again - for us hybrids. I know we are many.
This sugary confection is on Party ribbon. This is a fun and beautiful nylon ribbon that has a wonderful hand when knit. For ideas and patterns go to the Crystal Palace website and look under patterns, and under party ribbon.
Now, please join me in wishing good weather all the way to Boston, and all the way through Monday. The man, along with 20,000 others, has worked hard for this day. They deserve perfect weather. And I would much rather listen later to how great it was instead of how awful!
