My poor sewing machine is feeling pretty lonely and neglected. I have been having a love affair with knitting lately. Not too long ago, I happened on a yarn sale. I didn't have anything particular in mind at the time but picked up 3 skeins of yellow sportweight. Well, some of that ended up as the baby cardigan I blogged about a few posts back.
Now I have just finished a little blanket to throw over baby when he/she is in a car seat or baby carrier.
Measures about 19 by 23 inches.
Close up. Looks complicated but really quite simple to knit.
Edit: Pattern from Bernat yarns
Changes I made to make it car seat size: CO 95, increase/decrease 6 sts evenly on the rows above and after pattern body. Happy knitting!
My daughter has 3 friends having babies in the next couple of months. The cardi will go to one and the little blanket to another. The third friend will receive a quilt. Well, guess I had better dust my machine off and get working on the quilt. I made the top last year anticipating a gift giving opportunity. Now to sandwich and machine quilt!
Of course, I'm also on the hunt for another knitting project. I have a partial skein left of the yellow but I think I'll give that a rest and find something entirely different.
Talk at you later. Rumi
