I’ve been making a lot of shawls and scarfs lately but not a lot of blankets. I got in stages of loving giant projects then hating them. I’ve recently started a few blankets and work on them every so often. I have a stash busting 12 point ripple, yellow cotton baby blanket, and a pink diamond baby blanket.
I’m trying to use up a lot of my stash as i’ve had yarns sitting in it for years and also because i want to buy more yarn hahaha A 12 point ripple is a favourite pattern of mine and i enjoy not having to think about the pattern. This yarn was bought ages ago and i have a lot more of it. I need it gone!
The yellow cotton blanket seemed like a good idea at the time. I needed a baby blanket and thought cotton would be a good option. I had some 4ply in my stash and got to work. The pattern i choose was very tight which doesn’t help. The hook is 3.5mm. So this is taking forever. I think it’s about 15-20 min a row. So boring and the blanket is not growing. Also I miscalculated and will have to buy more cotton to finish it… if i finish it.
The pink diamond blanket is a back up blanket if the yellow one goes to WIP heaven. Ive wanted to try this pattern for ages and have a heap of baby yarn sitting around. This works up quick, but i get mixed up with the repeat pattern if i don’t finish a whole section. I will probably finish this one next.
