I just wanted to stop by quickly and show you the finished blanket I made for my second Facebook “Pay it Forward” gift.
I used 4 balls of Bernat Super Value yarn and US size 8 circular knitting needles.
I casted on 180 stitches and slipped the first stitch purl wise, knitted across the row, then purled the last stitch. I did this for every row creating a garter stitch blanket with an I-cord edge.
When I came close to the end of one colour and wanted to add my next colour, I knit 2 rows of my one colour, then 2 rows of my next colour and I did this twice so you would have 2 stripes of the new colour intertwined with 2 stripes of the colour before.
This one is heading to Sault Ste. Marie for my godson and his family. 😀
So, I finally finished my pillow cushion pattern “Lost At Sea”!
It’s available over at loveknitting.com. You can click here to get the pattern.
And I’m almost done the second cushion cover in the set, so stay tuned!!
We’ve been so busy lately trying to sell our house; cleaning everyday, trying to get everyone out for showings and looking for a new house for ourselves, that, of course, my knitting has taken a back seat. But thankfully part of that craziness is over as we sold our house last week, and now we just have to find a house for ourselves to buy (which isn’t easy AT ALL, but that would be a whole new blog in itself! LOL!).
So, I’m almost done the blanket from the last post and the second cushion of a set of 3 I’m trying to create. I’m hoping to get the pattern written for the first cushion I made. I have it scribbled out, but now have to make it legible for everyone else! 😉
But here’s the first cushion. I’m calling it “Lost at Sea”.
Hopefully next week I will be able to tell you the pattern is complete!!
Back to looking for a new home!!
