At Last!


Finally, blanket #1 is done. It took a little longer than I thought, but isn't that always the way.

I used leftover Beehive Baby yarn 3 ply with Magic Garden 2 ply and knit with two strands.
Pink, green, yellow and white.

Needles: 5mm
Pattern: Patons Fairytails (old)




I started to crochet the next one, but I did about 3 rows and I just couldn't keep going. There's just something about crocheting that didn't appeal to me , it just didn't look as nice as the knitting. So.............................

Blanket # 2 started. I forgot I had this pattern until last night. It is from Vogue Knitting, Winter 91/92. An article written by Meg Swansen and Elizabeth Zimmerman. The only picture I have is the small photo in the article, so you'll have to wait till it's done to see. It's knit in garter stitch with short rows and a lace edge.

Oh what a beautiful blanket. Can't wait to see how the other turns out. Zimmerman was a genius so I bet it'll be great!!

Your blankets are so wonderful; it must feel good knitting/crocheting these knowing where they will end up - wrapping some lovely smelling little bundle of joy!
