WIP Wednesday: Ripple Baby Blanket

 

This pink, purple, and white baby blanket has been a work in progress (WIP) for about 3 months. When Noah was younger, it was difficult to work on toys. Blankets require less concentration than the shaping that goes into toys. Plus, I recently received my large yarn order for the year, and I want to clear some space in my crochet studio.

Monday Musings: Back to Work

 

As I mentioned in my previous post, I took a break from The Silver Hook in August for a family vacation in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Long car travel with a 4 month old baby (and a pair of cats) was a learning experience, but the whole trip was fantastic. We climbed a mountain, went swimming in the ocean, did a little geocaching, visited The Fortress of Louisbourg and Village Historique Acadien.  Below are pictures from Village Historique Acadien: a woman using a drop spindle to spin wool and some naturally dyed wool yarn.
