FO Friday!

Done at last? Well, it does seem like forever, but according to my Ravelry project page, it has actually been just under a month since I started the baby blanket…

Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash in Amethyst Heather 3.5 skeins

Needles: KnitPicks Options size 8’s on a long cable

Pattern: My own. Seed stitch border all around, then alternating bands of three repeats of Gull Lace and six rows of stockinette.

Size: Pre-blocking/soak it was 27″ by 32.5″ This morning it is more like 32″ X 42″. No pinning. Just a good soak then laying it out on towels for the night.

Verdict: Love it!

Special thanks to Love2read on Ravelry who sold me her skein of yarn when it became evident I needed more…and the color was sold out everywhere!

Such a pretty color…this shot shows it best….

What’s next? I promised the youngest I’d make him a new Kippah before he leaves for Israel at the end of the month…so maybe that…or perhaps a quick break to make some fingerless gloves for the Teatime On The Moors KAL?

  4. Oh it turned out so pretty!!

  5. Beautiful! And I love the way the plain frames the blocks so nicely–not in a flat line across but echoing the motion of the wings of the gulls.

  6. Love the lacy pattern. Cozy, but not too heavy!

  7. Beautiful blanket! Will be a family heirloom for sure! (Love the colour, of course).
