I finished the baby afghan I was working on. The pattern is the Sunshine Baby Blanket and can be found here.
This is the same blanket I posted about last Friday that people were having trouble with the pattern after Round 23. As it turned out, I didn't get very far past Round 23 when I realized I would run out of yarn long before the end (seems to be a problem for me lately!) so I had to "make it work" as Tim Gunn says.
I think I did about 26 rows and then did a row of SC. Then, borrowing from a border I had seen on Pammy Sue's blog, I did the final row as SC, Ch 3, 3 DC all in same stitch, skip 2 stitches, then repeat. I really like how it turned out, it gave it a feminine, lacy look. Here is an up-close picture:
Yay, another baby blanket finished. I have three more to make, and all of them are having boys. I'm not sure if those blankets will be quilted or crocheted, I haven't decided yet.
Speaking of Pammy Sue, I tried another of her recipes yesterday and, as usual, it was delicious. I made the Cafe Rio Shredded Brisket Tacos that she blogged about here. I did the substitutions that Pammy did (used olive oil instead of bacon grease and beef stock instead of chicken stock). Mr. S. said it was a definite keeper recipe. Thanks Pammy Sue :)
Hope everyone has a great week.
