View Full Version : Grandbaby's Blankie with pic this time

10-06-2007, 01:21 PM
After seeing the wonderful FOs, I decided to take a picture of mine. I had 2 months to start and finish so I did a simple k7, p7 that my friend suggested. After finding it curled so badly on the edges (knit & learn), I decided to crochet the edges. I was totally frustrated with my loose stitches on the first purl stitch, but, overall, it turned out cute, it's very cuddily, I was done in 1 month and I did it myself! And, I finally figured out how to post the picture!

It turned out fabulous! I love the wave effect. Is it purple and white alternating or held together or is that just one yarn. At any rate... I love the colors and the border is a great accent. Nice job!

Thanks Marni. It's purple and white alternating. I needed something fast and simple.

I just wanted to say thanks to one and all for your encouragement. I've never been part of a group on-line before and now I'm glad I've found y'all. What a great place to learn, grow, and get and give. There's just too much to see and do! Happy knitting everyone. I've pulled out some UFOs and am really determined this time to get them done. ;D

You did great and kudo's for altering the edging! I think the contrast 'makes' the project!
