Baby Blanket :) Ta da!

Postby clothmama » Sat Jul 26, 2014 7:43 am

Main blanket completed 18/09/2014 - just need to do the border!

The colours of yarn I'm starting with:

First section 26/07/2014:

I'm making this blanket for my baby boy. The yarn is a 50% cotton 50% acrylic which is lovely and soft and will hopefully wash and wear well.

I'm using this pattern:

The blanket is about 90cm wide and I think I'll make it about 120cm long as that will hopefully look well balanced :)

PROGRESS:
27/07/14 This is absolutely flying along and I'm really really enjoying the different stitches and seeing it come on (I have had trouble putting it down :giggle: ). I decided I need more colours in it and luckily had a pink from another project in the same yarn :yahoo:

Coming on pretty well, my edges are a bit wonky I hope it evens out with blocking. I went and for more wool, sadly no other colours so will just have what I have!

Progress 16/08/2014

I have actually added a hot pink and a pale purple, I dont' have a lot of them but I think it works well :)

It is so so so much quicker than doing my big sofa blanket!

Thanks, I will need to get more yarn so not sure I may add some more, thinking maybe a paler blue if they have one as I'm worried it will be too dark, I'll have to see how it goes. I'm struggling a bit with trying to be random and not knowing what comes next :lookround:

You inspired me to stop looking at that pattern and actually do it! How many colours did you have in yours?
