recent knits

I’m pretty sure my most favorite thing to knit is blankets. I don’t know what it is about blankets, but I am such a sucker for them!

Plush blanket

I’ve been working on this blanket for quite awhile. When I discovered that Berroco Plush had been discontinued, I snatched up what we had left in the store to make a big throw for my living room. We have been SO sad that this yarn is discontinued, it is perfect for making baby blankets! I used size 10 needles and knit each stripe from one ball. And used 20 balls total (I can’t believe how much this blanket cost!) It is definitely the favorite blanket around here and so soft and snuggly.

Gunnison's sweater

I made this sweater for baby Gunnison. I just love my stand-by Knitting Pure and Simple #214 Baby Pullover Pattern. It is perfect for babies and so easy. The yarn is Spud and Chloe Sweater which is my favorite kid yarn at the moment. I modified the pattern a little bit by using a size 8 needle rather than the recommended size 9. I thought the yarn did better on a size 8. So I tweaked the sizing so it would end up being the 6 month size.

Zig zag blankie

Zig zag blankie

I made this blanket for my cousin Leann who is pregnant with her third child. I just knew the baby was going to be a girl and for the first time in YEARS I was actually right. I love, love, love this pattern from Purl. It was so easy and such a great way to use Blue Sky’s organic cotton. It’s so soft and squishy. We plan to offer this blanket as one of our fall workshops at Tangle.
