I haven’t posted anything in awhile, BUT I have still been knitting.
I found out one of my co-workers is expecting a baby in October so I decided I would knit a baby blanket. I haven’t knit a baby blanket in a long time so it’s a real nice change. My co-worker and his wife don’t know what they’re having so I chose classic yellow.
It’s a really simple pattern with a 3″ garter stitch border and the stockinette stitch in the centre. I’m double knitting it so it’s super cozy!!
I’m also working on a pair of slippers using a cotton yarn with a bit of stretch in it. I love the knitted slippers but I find that after a few wears I have to wash them to get their shape back.
I thought if I used a yarn with a bit of stretch, this problem may be eliminated. I found a photo of some knitted baby slippers on Pinterest that I thought would also make great adult slippers.
If they turn out and I LOVE them, I will write up the pattern for them so you can make a pair too! I’m almost done the knitting part. I will just have to assemble them afterwards.
Now off to try and finish one of these projects. I have so many others I want to start but have told myself I have to complete one before starting another!! LOL!!
