This is so appropriate as I sit waiting for the mail-person to deliver a package of yarn and a couple new crochet hooks (lighted ones, at that). There is also yarn for my grandson Jacob's blanket.  I was going to make an American flag until a friend mentioned that it would remind her of the flag on her father's coffin at his funeral. That was enough to make me change my mind as Jacob is in the National Guard. When he graduates from high school, he will be in the Army.  Then I wanted to make him an "easy" wave blanket.

Isn't that pretty?  Well, I just could not get the "hang" of the  pattern.  So now it will either be striped OR I am thinking of making 12" squares in a log cabin pattern.  And, of course, I have several different shades of red, blue and white.  Did you ever notice how many different shades of white there are?

Oh... I am experiencing a problem leaving comments on other blogs. I have tried everything I can think of to rectify this with no success. Can anyone think of a reason this would happen?

So I am waiting for my box of goodies.  And I am experiencing a wee bit discomfort in my right hip and leg. Perhaps a flare-up of my sciatica? And that is why the wait for my package is so painful. I did take one of my pain pills which is having that calming, light-headed affect on me. So I guess it is time to sign off for now and thank you for stopping by.


  1. I love the ripple stripe and am sorry you're having problems with it. I finally got one to work by realizing I had to add stitches to the end of every row.

    Since you're on Blogger, too, I don't know hwy you're having trouble adding comments. How vexing.

  2. I've not a clue why you can't post comments on other blogs. It's weird indeed.

    I love the blanket you are doing for your grandson. He'll like that.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  3. There is a You Tube "How To" video for the Wave Pattern


Thanks for stopping by... I appreciate your comments.
