Suz ie Q, baby I love; oh Suz ie Q. I've never been good at remembering who did what song, so perhaps one of you know which song it is that's in my head as I type this post. This is Susie, you've seen her before. She's quite a ham, loves to have her picture taken and is often a model for me for finished scraves, hats and the like. She said, and I quote; "the blankets no good until it's been test". Now if I had a little smiling face thingy here it would be rollin it's eyes. LOL

Anyway, this is a super soft blanket I finished a few weeks ago. It was requested by my boss. Not like one can really say no to one's boss. This isn't the prettiest baby blanket I've made, the colors? I don't know, what do you think? The yellow just isn't soft pretty baby yellow to my way of thinking; but then she picked out the yarn ...........sooooooooooo there you go.

It's one huge granny square, but the yarn was quite thin, like fingering weight so it took forever to make. I used a small hook (can't now remember what size), and did 3 or 4 rows for the ruffle edge. I ended up with 9 scallops per stitch so you know how long that took.

She gave it as a shower gift for her niece who loved it.

Feeling under the weather the last 3-4 days, better today; but still taking it easy. Didn't go to work, no need to spread the bugs.

Gonna spend some time sorting hats, mittens, and scarves today for the homeless folks and the free clinic folks. Have you visited The Bridge and Beyond? If not, please do; some very big hearted and talented people have donated fabulous items.


  1. I'm sure the recipient of the blanket will love it.

    Hope you feel better soon. Everyone around me is ill and I've been fortunate so far.

  2. I know of the tune,....love the way you walk,love the way you talk....llllaaaa susie q...
    who sings it? I do not recall.but I hope somebody
    remembers and calls in with the info....

  3. The blanket turned out lovely! I really like the ruffle edging. The colors seem to blend really well in the photos, but I know it might look different in person. I guess the trend these days is for brighter primary colors for babies. I'm glad the recipient liked it. That's the most important thing.

    Also, thank you for all your recent comments on my blog. I'm still plugging away on the WIPs, and I really feel good about getting some of the really old projects out of my life one way or another.

  4. I know the tune too! I think that pretty well dates us!

    Got the HUGE bag on the porch and will give it to Rae tomorrow. Thank you and the others!

    How was your trip to Chillicothe?

  5. That blankie looks very cute and comfy!
