Knitting season continues to impress this fall! The knitting and crochet blogs have turned out another great week’s worth of sweaters, accessories, home décor, and blankets. All of which remind me of the total lack of holiday knitting I’ve yet to start this year. Better get on that!
It’s Friday, and it’s Shark Week, and it’s Chicago Yarn Crawl week! There’s still a month left of summer, too! Life is good, and the weather is too (here in Midwestern America), so I’ve got nothing to complain about. I’ve got a bundle of knitting and crochet to work on this weekend, including all of the fine inspiration below to keep my brain yarn-occupied. :) TGIF!
A baby blanket knitting pattern designed for speed and ease. This pattern is ideal for beginners – there aren’t any stitches beyond knit and purl at all! So even if you just learned to knit to make your first project for a new niece or nephew or your own baby on the way, this pattern is 100% doable.
I have about 15 friends and relatives who have recently had babies or are currently pregnant. It’s SO MANY ladies, you guys! While all of this baby news is super exciting, it can be a bit of a burden when you try to knit blankets for that many babies. The pattern I’m sharing today is one I came up with for two of the blankets I’ve gifted so far. It’s easy and is good even for beginner knitters. The only things you need to know how to do beyond casting on & off and knit & purl is how to knit 2 together and yarn over.
