Ahh to have the clarity of a 3 year old.
But I did get a project finished recently, it's another knitted blanket in my favourite garter stitch!
I used a chunky/Aran weight yarn and a simple pattern with size five needles so it was a breeze to knit whilst all the Christmas festivities were happening. Basically I started with three stitches and then increased one stitch at the end of each row. This is a really simple and nice effect, providing your leave enough wool to do the decreases when your happy with the size.
I did not. Which is why my blanket features a rather fetching hood in a different wool (two strands of 4ply).
I don't think it turned out too badly , the yarns work quite nicely together colour wise. I think it helps that they are both speckled!
To do the hood I simply decreased with my blue wool until it ran out then continued with the White, I kept decreasing until I had three stitches left and then I started increasing again until the new increased section matched the white section where I decreased.
If that makes any sense at all.
Basically it looked like this
And people said having an alevel in art would be useless.
Then I just sewed up the seams either side!
Anyways I'm very pleased with it, I actually think it looks quite chic and I think it's a good size for a newborn. Plus the wool is very lovely and squishy!
I'm not sure where it's going to end up, a few people I know are expecting babies so probably with one of them!!
