It seems a long time since I've finished a crafting project, one of the downsides of splitting my time between a number of projects and working on them all at once, it means that no one project gets an awful lot of time spent on it. I have finally finished something though, the Twinkle Twinkle Baby Blanket by Helen Stewart. Not that there's any babies to knit for at the moment but I just fancied knitting this when I saw it. I enjoy knitting things for babies as they're so small and knit up in no time at all.
I used Drops baby merino in the light beige colourway and it took about 226g. It's lovely and soft and has a good drape to it too. I like the colour, it's neutral so it will be suitable for a boy or a girl.
It was an easy knit, I could watch TV whilst working on it as there were no complicated stitches or pattern to follow and I enjoyed knitting it, so much so that I'd quite happily knit another one.
I'd be quite tempted to make it bigger next time, I ended up with 74g of yarn left over so I could have added a few extra rounds but I think a cot size blanket would be lovely.
I love the lace edging, it finishes it off beautifully and the detail was so easy to achieve.
Now that this is finished it leaves a space to add something else to my crafting rotation, I think it's time for a new cast on.
It's gorgeous Jo well done on the finish, I can see how lovely the drape is and it looks so squishy and soft. I'm looking forward to seeing what your next knitting project will be.ReplyDelete

So lovely - both the colour and the pattern! I love blankets that you can just work on without worrying about following a pattern - such great "pick up and knit" projects to always have at hand.ReplyDelete
