I did a little drive by to JoAnn's to pick up some thread and buttons for Scout's Lacy Dress. I think I did good on the color match:
Saturday afternoon I picked up a copy of Jan Eaton's "200 Ripple Stitch Patterns: Exciting Patterns to Knit and Crochet for Afghans, Blankets and Throws". There are a number of patterns I would like to use from this book. But for now I'll only be doing one for the Ripple Along KAL. (I also got two smaller sized crochet hooks, just in case I need them for other projects.)
It's Red Heart Soft Yarn. I had originally wanted to do the Ripple Blanket in browns and teals, but I could not, for the life of me, find the color combination I was looking for. And since, like other fiber addicts out there in the world, I was impatient to start N.O.W. Anyway, the red/black/white combination is very pretty and I have to say that this is the softest acrylic yarn I have ever felt. For $2.99 a skein (and over 200 yards a skein), I'd say it's a great deal.
Can you guess what this is?
It's Scout's new outfit I got at Target this morning. I had been looking for some shorts for her and these were just too cute. (Can you believe that this is a 12 month size though?) Two weeks ago, Shawn and I had been stocking up on onesies and jammies because she's getting too big for her 0-3 month clothes. Well, we got plenty of onesies but the jammies don't seem to be working for this hot weather. So I bought a couple pairs of shorts and a striped shirt to match both pairs.
And as always, there are more pictures here. (Including a picture of Scarlett giving Scout some loving!)
