Ok, so this post is waaay overdue. The photos were taken in March, and the gifts were given at the beginning of April. I wanted to wait until I gave the gifts to blog it, and then we moved. And then life happened. Anyway, so onto the blankets!
|From March 2010|
First up is the blanket I made for baby Julian. I used a cotton/acrylic blend in blue that I had in my stash (Cotton Ease in case you were wondering). The pattern was the Swaddling Baby Blanket from the March/April 2010 issue of Crochet Today. The Edging was supposed to be done with a nifty new pom-pom yarn, but I decided to try it out in a more subtle boucle yarn that I had in my stash already.
Overall, I really like the end result of this one. I love the stitch pattern of the main part of the blanket! I could easily see doing this same pattern and switching out different novelty yarns for the edging to get different effects.
Next up is the blanket I made for Chris and Sheila’s little one. I again used Cotton Ease that I already had in my stash. This pattern was the Single Skein Blankie from the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Crochet Today.
