I feel like I finally accomplished something. Baby Blanket # 2 is done. Some days it felt like the baby would be a year old before I ever finished it.
Pattern: Vogue Knitting Winter 91/92
by E. Zimmerman & M. Swansen
Yarn: Stylecraft DK 100% acrylic
150g yellow, 250g white
Needles: 4mm-5 1/2mm
I love this pattern! It's great for a beginner knitter and us more seasoned knitters too. It's all done in garter stitch with short rows, and the lace edge is knit back and forth and knit on to the edge of the blanket as you go.
The possibilities are endless. I kept thinking you could do each section a different colour or even knit each triangle in two colours and end up with the pinwheel block.
The only thing I would change is my needle size. I used a 5 1/2mm so it would be drapey and loose but the next one I think I will use a 4 1/2mm.
Meg Swansen also goes on to say that if you fold it in half you end up with a useful shawl too.
Now back to Julie's Aran , and I leave you with dumb dog picture of the day.
And cute cat picture.
