Yes, it's a dog's life! Phoebe loves my Babette. As I work on it, I have to lay it out in front of me so I can piece my new squares...she can't stand it. I turn around and she has manipulted it with those little stubby feet into her own personal bed! Now most crocheters would probably shutter...but I enjoy it. Somehow she goes perfectly with every afghan or blanket I crochet!
This weekend I was able to spend time working on my blanket. This last leg of it has become long and at times mundane, so I have to put it down for a little while. But I am determined to get this thing done. I have run into one other obstacle...that is the need for more yarn. I was hoping I could stretch it out but I don't think it's gonna quite make it!
I am not sure if you can tell, but I have one more band of the blue border to complete then I can finish it up! I am so pleased with how this is looking, I suppose that is what has kept me working on it! I am even toying with the idea of entering it into the Dixie Classic Fair this fall.
For those that have been asking I am posting a link to the yarn I am using. I get it from Knitpicks, and it is called "Pallette". The colors it comes in are absolutley stunning. And of course, you can tell from this photo a small hook is required!
Indulge me...having no children to photograph, and a husband who disappears the moment I get my camera out, I have one willing subject in the house! So here is one more picture of Phoebe relaxing with me on the covered porch while I crochet. I am beginning to think I may need to rename this "Phoebe's Blanket"!
Well I am off to order more yarn!!!
