Happy 4th y'all!!! So I am almost with Dotty! Whew! I just have to do the binding. Making the cut was really scary but you know what? It didn't fall apart! Way easier than I thought. If you ever feel like you want a challenge but arent sure if you can do it - this pattern is found in the second Mason-Dixon Outside the Lines book. It's called Dotty. The pattern they wrote was not as complicated as I made this one. My mods were as follows:
- Cast on double the size of what the pattern calls for
- Used a cotton blend yarn (Lion Brand Cotton Ease)
- Had lots of cussing sessions for dropping stitches in weird placed (ok not really)
- TRUSTED the pattern to do what it said it would do
- Had fun and love the outcome!

OMG!!!! This here pattern has given me the blues!!!! You know the kind...my dog is dead and my woman done left me blues. I have ripped back and re-knit from the beginning about 60 eleven dozen times!!! The pattern is called Prairie Blanket by Oat Couture. If you have any tips please share. I consider myself to be a pretty good knitter, this made me feel like I couldn't count. Could read, couldnt tell a knit from a purl...UGH!!! Maybe I'm just not ready to knit it yet...yeah that's the ticket!!! HMPH!

Hey Y'all!!!! It's a new year and with a new year comes new projects! Ok I have a case of starteritis - and I'm not trying to control it anymore. It's just what knitters do. I have started working on the Bookman Blanket for someone who's birthday is in May in my family. And I am crazy enough to have started two of them. One is doubled and the other is single yarn. Both are made from cotton ease one in white and the other in lime green. I don't have photos to show yet as they are both coming along quite nicely. The pattern is found in the Interweave Holiday Knits magazine as well as here on Ravelry.
