    i just bought my first piece of monks cloth,and 2 skeins of yarn to try to make a baby blanket. i have until December for the new grandson to get here..so lots of time to check this out.


    not much in the way of booklets or info on it at Joanns.

    the pattern i am going to try is "Baby Baubles" by Jean Leinhauser .

    OK, I had no idea what this was.

    Looks like you could easily create your own graphics and stitch those.

    Very interesting. Learn something new everyday. Thanks for posting it.

    I am slow getting started, but start I did!

    Using variegated and Chocolate yarns...it is very relaxing...
