Baby blankets done…

Hello there!

So, I managed to complete the 2 baby blankets I was working on, BUT, totally forgot to take pictures of them! UGH! 😦

They were both stroller blankets – about 25″ x 35″ – knit in the garter stitch with an I-cord edge.  You’ll have to trust me when I say, they turned out just darling!

I have since started on a new project.

Here’s a little sneak peek.

I’m using 100% cotton Paintbox yarns in a slate grey and off white.  The vertical stripes are created using knit and purl stitches with a bunch of slipped stitches in there! It’s a really fun pattern!

So, I’m going to try and finish up a couple of patterns I’m working on and get them up for sale! It’s been quite some time since I’ve written anything new.

So, again my apologies for not sharing photos of the the completed baby blankets!  I promise it won’t happen again! LOL!

Happy knitting!

It’s knit using 2 strands of Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran yarn held together making it a super warm and thick poncho.

Knit in 2 pieces and sewn together, this pattern is great for a knitter looking to make their first garment.

Happy knitting!

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.
