Dog Gone!!

My new design afghan dedicated to man's best friend, specifically my best friend's dog,  Shiloh!  This pattern will be available soon in my Etsy store and Craftsy store.  I used Red Heart Classic yarn.  Skill level would be advanced intermediate.  I used yarn bobbins on "islands" of color which may take more time for the setup but worth it for minimizing the messiness on the wrong side.  Instead of SHILOH, the text on the pattern will say, BEST FRIEND. This afghan will make a great gift for dog lovers everywhere.

Hey Guys!

Wow, I have really neglected my blog! I hope to try to do better in the future, but meanwhile, let me share with you what I have been up to.
I will try to put up a tutorial for the Tunisian Star Flower in October. I made the bonnet while sitting with my father in the hospital.

Vintage Ripple Stitch

Here is day 1 to learning this awesome stitch. Now I stumbled upon this beautiful stitch on Facebook when it was posted by Edinir Aparacido Bento. It came complete with this easy to use chart! Right? Wrong! This chart is almost impossible to follow if you want to learn this stitch, so I decided to share with you what I did in a four-day tutorial. Day 1, Row 1: Chain 32. Beginning with second ch from hook, sc in the next 4 ch, 3 sc in the next ch, *sc in the next 4 ch, skip 2 ch, sc in the next 4 chk, 3 sc in next ch*. Repeat from * to * until last 4 ch. Sc in last 4 ch, ch 1 turn. Your work should look like this. Good work! See you tomorrow for day 2 lesson 2!
