Sea Glass Baby Blanket

I've always been drawn to ocean colors.  Beautiful turquoise, tranquil aquas and soft greens.  I recently finished a new baby blanket and didn't realize until I was half way through, that I was knitting with the colors of sea glass.  It recalled recent trips to the ocean and the calming effect of the water.

The baby blanket was knit with Madelinetosh Pashmina yarn (75% merino wool, 15% silk and 10% cashmere), super soft and cuddly.  I think this would make a great gift for a special newborn baby, something that would be saved and passed down to new generations of sea-faring babies.  Available now on my website:

Getting Ready for Fall

The weather has started to cool off, the sun, setting earlier.  The humidity is waning and mornings are cool and refreshing.   The A/C is being used less and less and I'm starting to break out the blankets and quilts at night.  This is a nice, cozy time of year. 

I've been busy lately working on fall and winter items: hand-knit sweaters, scarves and hats, blankets and soft quilts.  I'm still working furiously, but wanted to share some pictures of new items soon to be on the website!
