#321

Thanks for finishing up before you left the country!


#322

i’m ready! have a great trip! that would have been great to meet up… jhelanee and i did that with #1…looking forward to the blanket :woot:


#323

Oh, I’m glad you’re ready, jeanius! :yay:
Have fun with the blanket and maybe we can meet after I’m back. We’re not that far apart!

I’ll send it today or ask DH to mail it tomorrow.


#324

the blanket came today! it’s so pretty! I was going to use some country blue caron simply soft… but i think instead i am going to dig and find my skein of it in autumn to match the beautiful colors already in the blanket! If not, i always have my skein of red heart in a deep red :slight_smile:
Thank you REVS for the chocolate and soap! (those are some of my favorite chocolates too :biting: )


#325

Woo Hoo! Another safe journey! :cheering:


#326

Oh, I’m glad it made it okay! :cheering:

And I’m glad you’re liking the chocolates, jeanius! I’m in the land of plenty for that now, too much temptation! And we’re off for a couple of days in Switzerland - now Germany has good chocolate but Switzerland may outdo Germany. I may have to roll on board of that plane back to the US next week… :teehee:

Those colors you are talking about sound lovely with the blanket. Either of them would be so pretty. :inlove:
Can’t wait to see more pictures. Sorry I spaced that on my end!

Have fun and knit on! :yay:


#327

Oh Ruth, you’re so lucky with all your travels!


#328

I really am! :inlove:

Plus I already got to visit a yarn store and pick up some inexpensive German sock yarn. Amongst it Regia 4 ply silk wool - yum, so soft! :heart: :cheering: :heart:

I’ll have to post pics when I’m back home…


#329

Please do! :cheering:


#330

wasn’t this supposed to be 280 sts? i counted 300… plus a lady at knit night last night volunteered and also counted 300… just wanted to give you the heads up Sandy!


#331

OMG! Our blanket has GROWN! :teehee:

If you don’t mind, count the stitches again, and see if it’s 300. But, I can’t for the life of me figure out why it would have grown! :??

Or…maybe it’s my fault. Maybe I INTENDED to do 280 stitches, but cast on the usual 300. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve made a mistake in my life. :wink:


#332

lol, no biggie, i just wanted to let you know. I was trying to knit a 14 stitch pattern (goes great into 280 sts, not so much into 300 :wink: ), and i had to tink the whole row and recount 2x. so i’m going to adjust the stitch pattern to a 15 stitch repeat.


#333

I’m so glad you’re flexible, my friend. :hug:

Let me know if that pattern works for you.


#334

it should… i am just doing some large triangles :slight_smile:

see my simple chart :shifty:


#335

I just realized I get the blanket next. I am so excited. :slight_smile:


#336

:sun:


#337

So, how’s our blanket Jeanie?


#338

it’s going great! i am hoping to get it mailed friday… i take and share a pic when i’m done :slight_smile:


#339

Perfect! That will be a day early for your two weeks! :thumbsup:
