Baby blanket mania

This summer I undertook three baby blankets. I missed the deadlines (birth dates) on all three and so far have only completed one. I blame my poor timeliness on two factors: my inability to order the right amount of yarn and my new plan to make all baby blankets in adult throw sizes, which means somewhere around 3 feet by 4 feet. That’s 36 square feet of stitches!

I’m really happy with how the first one turned out, the green one below. All three use the same super-wash merino wool from Knit Picks. I love the saturated colors that this yarn comes in and I also think super-wash merino is fantastic. I just need to keep on knitting and knitting and knitting.

  1. These look great! Maybe you should start knitting one for me now — and then you won’t be late ;)

  2. At this rate you may be getting one of these blankets. Or maybe I will start calling them “toddler blankets” :-)
