Baby blanket done

I just finished this baby blanket. It is my basketweave pattern I designed in 1972. I used 8 skeins of Homespun in the color Williamsburg. This is for my daughter and her hubby to give to hubby's cousin. Cousin just had new baby boy! This is a heavy blanket but each time you wash it, it gets softer and softer and lighter.
Gonna make my granddaughter Mia one in light purple for Christmas cuz her Mommy has requested it. :)

another purse almost done

I just now finished a Noni purse for a swap. It is a triangle ended bag and I used Patons Classic Merino in a blue and then a varigated plum, rust, and blue. It came out real nice. I ordered 6 sets of plastic handles. 2 in blue marled, 2 in purple glitter and 2 in rust, but none of them really match the purse so I am going to make an i-cord for the handles. better get to it so I can get this bag felted and sent out. Will post a photo of it once the bag gets to my partner!!
