The first baby blanket is done. I'm still in the dark as to this baby's gender so wove baby colors to be safe. Yesterday I learned the baby's name is Taryn and that still makes me feel uncertain of gender.
Hem stitching has been a mystery to me, but I couldn't image a baby sucking on braided fringe. I found instructions on hem stitching and used it for the first time. I can't do anything more here until my next yarn order arrives with blue for the second blanket. It's a lot fast to weave a blanket than to knit one, I can tell you that.
This afternoon I started to wind these yarns for my next set of dish towels. I do color by the seat of my pants and after I chose these, I immediately had second thoughts. I wound several bouts before dinner and when I looked at them hanging from the front beam, I thought. You know Sharon, you don't do so bad.
