Evans' Housewarming Gifts

This is one of two washcloths I've made for Bethany & Billy's new house. Congrats on your first home!!! These are made with the Elvish Leaves pattern. I am so proud of how they turned out. This is my first attempt at such a "complex" pattern (you have to remember that I'm a new knitter!). I really enjoyed making these & enjoyed the challenge of the pattern. Only took me a few hours for each cloth. And hopefully Bethany & Billy will get some good use out of them for years to come!

Layla's Blanket

This is a blanket I made for my niece (who should be making her debut soon!). It's made with Yarn Bee Highland Thistle yarn in the color Galloway. Again, I chose the feather & fans pattern with size 10 needles & I absolutely adore it with this yarn! This is by far my most favorite blanket that I've made so far. I hope Layla can get lots of use from it! And hopefully it will be a keepsake for her for years to come.
