this post is brought to you by the letter N

but first the baby blankie-

the sunshine baby blanket if finally finished. crocheted a little shell edging all the way around. squeaked through with just barely enough yarn of each color yellow. maybe i'll have enough left over for some baby socks.

yarn- baby ull from norway
crochet hook- turn of the century size f

look at this gorgeous skein of yarn! it's north country cotton mini from cherry tree hill, color nantucket red of course! i've been eyeing this yarn for a while, and this year the yarn store had enough for a sweater.

it swatched beautifully, and will be a simple(ish) raglan cardi with garter borders.
cast on provisionally with size 6 circs, and will knit the garter border all the way around the cardi at the end. mostly because i can't decide on whether to put just one button at the collar, or buttons all the way down.

sheep to shore, where the yarn was purchased, is a lovely shop, full of beautiful yarn and tons of knit-up samples.

s'more montage.

dukie actually turned around and posed for this photo.
he purrs like a machine.

Oh to be young, and not care what you eat!

For years, I never wear red but I'm beginning to like it. That's a gorgeous red!

Lovely blanky - I'm probably too partial tho ;-)

I know you wish I was there to share those s'mores with.

Okay. I wish I were there.

Love the cheery colours in the blanket. Aren't s'mores just a hoot to eat? DD looks like she enjoyed them. Hope you have a great holiday.

The blanket turned out beautifully! It's going to be lovelier with the edging.

What a great vacation picture(s). I think they define happiness.
