Life and Little More Stitching

I can always tell when life gets stressful. I all I want to do is stitch. With that being said, I am putting the projects asside to get ready for the transition at the end of the month. The burp cloths and bibs are for several friends who have had babies recently. I have added to the wash cloths as these have become the mindless knitting I do at night. I worked up a pattern that I saw for a baby blanket and adapted it for the wash cloths. It is super easy and I like the look of the rib.
Southwest Horizontal Rib Stitch:
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: *K1,P1* repeat across row
Row 4: Purl
This is the pattern along with the Garter Borders.
My WIP is the picture "O Jersalem" by Greg Olson. I had the opportunity to meet the artist earlier this year and set the goal of finishing it. This has been a long process and hopefully I can get it done.

Gayle, your stitching is beautiful, but I think your heart is MORE beautiful. Thank you for dropping by my blog and leaving the words to that song of comfort. Please know that I believe it was God-sent and you were so gracious to leave it for me. I'm so blessed by God to have wonderful friends 'out there' in blogland.

May God bless you and your family today!
