Textured Blanket and By the Shores of Silver Lake

So my seed stitch afghan is officially

I kept ribbing by mistake and rather like
how it is turning out!

I am doing it with size 7 needles... 

My new goal is to learn how to do what I intend:
when I want to seed stitch and when I want to rib
instead of merely because I mixed up my knits and pearls!
I am going to add one more red yarn to this mix and then 
it will be 4 or so alternating colours like you see above.
I am really loving it!
I hope to add a border to it when it is finished.
I am thinking it may be a large lap blanket sized Afghan! 
I finished Wilder's 
and just loved it!

I went to the Princeton Library booksale
last weekend and found the whole set in paperback! 
I can't wait to read them all!
What are you reading and creating?
Yarn Along with us!

It is turning out to be lovely already! And those are such great books ... I reread them all last year and enjoyed them very much. :)

The blanket is so fun, and I love all the LIW books. They are the best!!

I love the colors for your blanket and mistakes - who cares? You're doing great! I just finished the Little House series and it was so different to read them as an adult - I took away so many different things that I had when I was young.

I love all the Little House books :-) Did you know there is a new autobiography of Laura Ingalls Wilder called "Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography"?

I think "textured" blanket is great! :)

I reread the LIW books about once a year. Looking forward to your opinion of the rest of them!

A happy mistake that made a beautiful new design.

I like the colours of your lap blanket. And I dare to say, it looks even better with all that different stitches!
