  1. Another lovely blanket and the colour is gorgeous.

  2. I'm confused with the middle pattern stitched row. Do you have a video?

  3. I'm not familiar either the term yon. What is expected there, yarn over needle?

      Here is her Abbreviations page. :) I didn't understand the term either. It appears that she has different terms for which way she does her yarn over, for different effects, I'm guessing.

  4. Gorgeous patterns! TQ for sharing U r one of a kind. Definitely will mk them as gifts. TQ again.
