View Full Version : Super easy blanket

10-26-2006, 02:52 PM
Well I finished the first baby blanket to go along with the sweater and hat I posted earlier. The only thing hard about this blanket is it gets heavy as you get halfway and for me, it starts to hurt my hands and my shoulders because I try and keep it from stretching too much. I ended up putting it under my armpit to knit the other day when I took it to my dh's doctor appt. I looked like an idiot, but at least it wasn't dragging!

Awwwww, how PRETTY!! I love the colors, its beautiful (and so are the hat and sweater!) I love the ribbon edging, too. Is that the corner to corner pattern? I made one of those for my DD in homespun, cottage red (or some color like that). It is the softest thing!

Great job! :cheering:

Yes, Hilary that is the diagonal blanket pattern that Lion Brand has. It is Homespun Waterfall I think is the color.

Wow, it is beautiful and looks so soft!

I admire you, I don't know if I'll ever be able to knit a blanket. :notworthy:

That looks like a blanket I've had in my head ever since I learned the Grandma's favorite dischcloth pattern. I love the colors and the ribbon. How did you get the ribbon to go in so nicely?

Beautiful. I'm sure they will be very appreciated.

I want to knit that blanket for my Neice and her baby but I am worried about the stretch of it and it getting out of shape. How does it sit when handled? is it okay? Yours is gorgeous!

the other blanket that I would make is the one with the basket weave look... also easy.

hmm.. decisions decisions.

Cara: I am pretty new to knitting stuff but though the blanket has a lot of stretch, it doesn't seem to lose it shape. Hope that helps with what you are asking.
