Reader's Projects: Beautiful Baby Blanket

My reader Cindy made this gorgeous baby blanket using my Never Ending Blanket Square. She has another picture on her blog Gardner's Ramblings. She donated it to her local pregnancy resource center.

Readers Projects - Manly Man Slippers

The first two entries for my contest were both the same pattern! Both readers had made my Manly Man Slippers for the men in their lives.

Tanya made these and says "I have used your Manly Man Slipper pattern to make my hubby's slippers. Loved the pattern It was quick and easy. He wears them all the time too, and he is picky"

This pair was made by Marie in NJ who says "I made another pair of your manly man slippers for Josh...he loves them because they are so warm. I used 1 strand of worsted weight charcoal gray, one strand black, gray, white variegated, and one strand of Symphony, I think the color was persimmon...kind of the colors of his favorite hockey team (Go Flyers!!). This is a fantastic pattern!!

Have You Made One of My Patterns? Do you have a picture? Contest!

I would love to feature pictures of my readers projects and have asked for them before. I got some and showed them off, but I need more!! I also have more of this yarn to give away. I have 8 skeins of this 100% Mercerized Cotton from Greece. It says Tahki Imports on it. Each hank is 50 grams (74 yards) and it says it's machine washable. The colors are deeper and richer than the photo shows, must have been the lighting when I took the picture. So send me a picture at debsstuff55 (at) Yahoo (dot) com for an entry! If you post your project on your blog (with a link to the pattern) and then comment on this post with the link it will count as 2 extra entries. Contest ends February 28th so if you haven't checked out my patterns you can try one and send me the pic! I will probably start showing off the pics before that but the winner will be drawn from a hat (actually it will probably be a plastic container) on March 1st.
