Josiah's Blankie

I got part of Josiah's blankie done. I made 3 of the rings of part of the squares. I think i'm going to crochet 6 of each 3 colors, depending on how big it's going to be. They are 6 inch blocks. This is the pattern i'm using - . It's pretty simple so far. Anyway, here is a photo of the first ring i made.

I'm thinking of crocheting little Josiah a blankie before i get to see him again sometime this summer! I'm wanting it to be squares crocheted together, so i'm looking at different patterns and blocks. I think i might do it in blue and yellow. I love that color combo. So this means i need to get some more yarn. I have both colors, but only 1 skein of each and they're different weights.

So long so talk...

So a lot has happened since i last posted...sorry about that. I moved to Virginia in late January. I'm loving it, it's so beautiful. I'm in a valley and have a great view outside. I will have to take some photos, especially now that spring is starting and everything is blooming. I'm also teaching myself to crochet...again. My mom taught me a bit when i was little, but i forgot most of it. I've been working on a few gifts. This is my link if you're on Ravelry: And a few pics:

Face cloth. I messed this one up a bit.

I made some really yummy banana bread today. I had to use up some very ripe bananas...they were close to fermented! hehe

I've also cut out all pork and shellfish (not that i ate that before) out of my diet and am trying to keep kosher as best as i can with what i have. I'm a believer in following the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. Some call that Torah Observant, so call it Messianic. Call it what you will, but that's me. The only thing that is a bit irritating is gelatin! It's in the weirdest yogurt. So i've got to watch out for the pesky gelatin, unless it's kosher gelatin. It hasn't been so very hard though.
