The 2011 Blanket Challenge

Vintage Blanket - Preview

2011, the year of the baby, at least among my friends. I remember a couple years back when it was all weddings and falling in love. Yet, this sudden baby boom has caught me by surprise. Having children, who knew it would be so popular? I’m expecting seven babies by July, plus two more that came late in 2010. That’s a lot of yarn crafting!

To celebrate all this fresh new life, I’ve set a challenge for myself, to complete nine (9, nueve) blankets by the end of July. Some will be knit, some crochet. I plan to make them all “adult” size, since babies don’t stay baby size for long and blankets can last a lifetime. Plus, aren’t they really for the parents, anyway?

I’m closing in on completing the first blanket, previewed above. Since I have two babies coming in February and two in March, if I can get a little ahead now, then by early spring I only need to be making one per month.

No problem! Right?


  1. Good luck!! You’re not going to want to look at yarn for a LONG time … :)
