Baby blanket…done!

Hello everyone!

I was happy I found some time today to do some knitting.

I managed to finish the baby blanket I was making for my husband’s co-worker.

The blanket is based on a pattern I found on Pinterest. Click HERE to read it.

It’s super easy to follow. Instead of adding 3 stripes at the one corner, I did one big stripe in off white.

I used Caron Simply Soft yarn and US size 8 needles.

I have a pattern that’s due mid August for Paintbox Yarns and I’m “this close” to getting it done, so off I go to finish it!

Happy knitting.

Sunday knitting & a baby blanket…

Hello everyone!

Since starting a new job recently, I don’t have nearly as much time as I used to to knit. 😦 So it’s turning out that Sundays are my knitting days.

Today I’ve started a baby blanket.

My husband’s co-worker is expecting a baby in October and since I  LOVE knitting baby blankets,  I thought I would knit one for him and his wife.

They don’t know the gender of the baby, so I chose this beautiful green yarn by Caron as opposed to the standard gender neutral yellow.  I adore the vibrancy of this colour!

I got the idea for this blanket from one I saw on Pinterest.  I really liked it because the body of the blanket is knit on a diagonal.  If you would like to make one too, you can click here for the pattern.

Off to work on the blanket some more.  It’s a hot one today, so I’ll be staying indoors!

Happy knitting!

New blanket done and book coming soon…

Hello there!

Well, I’ve completed another baby blanket and will now be writing a pattern for it.

The pattern will be part of a PDF book that I’m creating – “The Big Book of Baby Blankets & Bunting Bags”.

Introducing the “Lavender Fields Baby Blanket”.

This moss stitch blanket has been double knit using the super soft Caron Simply Soft yarn and US size 10.5 needles. It’s completely reversible and nice and cushy!

Stay tuned for the pattern!

Happy knitting!

Introducing “Thomas”…

Hi  there!

I started this crib blanket late last year but never had a chance to finish it.

Between making commissioned pieces, hosting Christmas, ringing in the New Year and then deciding it would be a great time to begin changing our flooring, I just didn’t have the time.

But now we’ve taken a break from changing the flooring (I needed a break from the dust – we’re putting hardwood down) so I had the chance to finally complete the blanket and get the pattern written.

I was inspired by the Burberry colours and hence the name “Thomas” as in “Thomas Burberry”. 😉

It’s a really simple blanket pattern that utilizes only the knit stitch and simple colour changes.  I used “Red Heart Soft” yarn.  It was wonderful to work with.  The blanket ended up nice and cushy!

The finished size is approximately 35″ X 46″ so would make for a really nice lapghan too!

The patterns are available for sale over at loveknitting.com, in my Etsty store and on Craftsy.com.

If you give it a try, please share a photo on my Facebook page! I would love to see your work!

Happy knitting!

This basket weave blanket is perfect to tuck baby in for an afternoon walk in the park.  Whether it be for an added layer now or as the only layer in the Spring, it’s sure to end up being the “go to” stroller blanket!

It’s made with approximately 600 yards of Aran weight yarn and US size 8 needles.  It utilizes only knit and purl stitches with simple colour changes so it’s a great pattern for a beginner knitter.

Happy knitting!
