Another blanket done…

Hi everyone!

I’ve completed another blanket!  😀 This one is for our family room.


It’s knit using 3 strands of Lion Brand “Feels Like Butta” yarn at once, so it’s BIG and heavy! My husband really likes heavier blankets. I used Charcoal and Pale Grey.

I knit it lengthwise so the stripes run up and down. I didn’t want to just have 2/3 charcoal and 1/3 pale grey, so I used a random stripe generator to create the stripe pattern in the the blanket so it’s a more gradual change of colours.


Also, I put an I-cord edge on to give the blanket a more finished look.


Well, I have 1 more blanket to complete that’s more than 1/2 done. After it’s finished, I don’t really have much yarn to make anything else. I placed a TON of yarn orders but they’re taking longer than usual to arrive these days.

I’ll have to knit more slowly and stretch out the completion of my last blanket. There’s no way I can have empty needles! 😂 I don’t know what I would do with myself!

Stay safe everyone and happy knitting.




Recent projects…

Hello everyone!

Most of you who follow my blog know I’m a lover of making blankets 😀 and today I wanted to share a couple of my COMPLETED projects.

For this beauty below, I used 4 balls of Lion Brand Mandala Tweed yarn in “Rainbow”.  I created the wonderful, soft blend of colours by knitting 2 strands of yarn together.


And for the grey and white blanket, I used 6 balls of Red Heart Soft Essentials yarn – 3 balls of white and 3 balls of grey.


The corner to corner blanket pattern is my absolute favourite for baby blankets!

And, of course, I have 2 other blankets on the go right now! 😉 The ones I’m currently making are couch blankets for my house.

I’ll share photos when they’re done.

I hope you are all staying safe and well.

Happy knitting!



Yarn Review…Lion Brand “Hometown USA”…

Good afternoon everyone!

A little while back, I mentioned to you some yarn that was sent to me to review – Lion Brand “Hometown USA”.  Well, I’ve finally had some time to play with it.


Lion Brand “Hometown USA” – review


TYPE OF YARN:  100% Acrylic Super Bulky (made in the USA).

KNITTING:  It’s a wonderfully soft yarn with a very vibrant colour.  I found when I first started knitting with it, the ends did unravel a bit but as I got further along in the piece, this was no longer an issue.  The stitch definition is good.  I feel this yarn would look best with a more textured stitch (Garter, Moss) than a flat stitch (Stockinette).

PACKAGING: Comes in a 81 yard ball (5oz)

GAUGE:  This yarn knits up true to gauge on US size 13 needles (9mm) at 9 stitches and 12 rows for 4″.  This is unblocked.

WASHING:  Machine washable and dryable.  I would suggest washing in cold water and a low tumble dry.

WHAT TO MAKE:  This is a super chunky yarn, so any project would knit up quickly.  If you’re looking for a weekend project, it would be perfect for chunky scarves and cowls or for pillow cushions. If you have more time, consider making a luscious baby blanket or a very appreciated couch throw.  It would also be ideal for Autumn wraps.

This yarn is available in a wide assortment of colours from and if you head over there before the end of July, there are some colours that are ON SALE for 25% off!

Happy knitting!




My yarn arrived…

Hello everyone!

This big box of beautiful yarn arrived on my doorstep this morning!

DSCN5863 sent it to me for FREE in exchange for a yarn review!  Not a bad deal if I do say so myself! 😉

I selected a yarn I’ve never used before just to try something new.  It’s “Hometown USA” by Lion Brand in “Vermont Green” and it’s super chunky.  And guess what?? It’s ON SALE right now over at!!

I know EXACTLY what I want to make with it and will hopefully get it started this weekend!

In way of a review; a full one will be done once I start knitting with it, but what I can tell you right now, is it’s amazingly soft and the colour is very vibrant.

Stay tuned for more…
