First, I finished this blanket. I absolutely love this yarn. It's so fuzzy and soft. When it's knit up, it feels just like a soft fleece blanket. I was going to list this on my website, but I think that this one is going to be saved for an upcoming baby shower. I'll just have to make another one to put up for sale. I don't think that I could ever get tired of using this yarn, though. It's just so comfy!
Here's a close up. Even this doesn't show how soft and cozy this blanket is.
The one that I'm knitting now is almost finished. Just a few more rows to go.
I love how this is turning out. The stripes add a nice change to the basic pattern and I love how the variegated yarn looks in the ripples. It's turning out to be a nice size, too. It would be a great blanket that a little one could use even thru the toddler years! Here is a close up.
I might have to make more stiped blankets with this pattern. Maybe blue and brown or pink and brown or shades of gray. Any ideas?
