Arctic Ice Blankie

IMG_1728  Another baby blanket is completed.  It was such a joy knitting this lightweight baby blanket.  It is worked in a simple garter stitch pattern.  I used Buttercream, Luxe Craft, Rainbow Boucle yarn–approximately 1.5 skeins (about 12 ounces of yarn).  The color is called Princess.  I love the pastel shades which makes me think of frozen snow cones.

I started this project on March 10 and finished it yesterday.  This blanket measures 44 inches by 45 inches.  I used size 8 circular knitting needles.  My cast on was 150 stitches.

Black Ink Afghan

  On December 23, 2016 while in Baltimore, MD for Christmas, I started this garter-stitched afghan for my son-in-law.  The finished measurements are 80 x 57 inches.  I used 6 skeins of Bernat Blanket, Super Bulky weight, in Black Ink.  I finished it earlier this week and mailed it out to him.  My goal was to get it completed by his birthday and I’m ahead of schedule.  So, Happy Birthday, Ben!
