Yay! I just love the way this lapghan looks. We have done a great job so far!

Let's try to stick with single colors from here on out, and avoid any knitting that might cause the blanket to "draw in".
Thank you all so much!

I got the lapghan today. I love packages on my front step when I get home from a bad day at work! I can't wait to start....now, to search my stash...
I will post new pictures before I send it along.

Karne- thank you for the note pads- they are beautiful!

Shendeh- You are so welcome. Enjoy your goodies!
I started working on the blanket last night and have about 1" done. I will take it to prayer shawl ministry tonight and work on it. (I don't like my prayer shawl anyway....I HATE homespun yarn!).

I feel your pain. Homespun is not my friend either. But, I have designed a pattern that uses that yarn, and it's not so bad to work with.

I hold it together with two strands of Bernat Baby Coordinates and make a simple baby blanket. It's easy to knit with that way, and doesn't hurt my hands at all! The blanket turns out so cushy and soft! My granddaughter claimed it right away!

I used "Homespun Baby" yarn, which is exactly like the regular Homespun.



Here's the pattern:
Sandy's Cushy Baby Blanket
Size 19 (36 inch long) circular needles
Lion Brand Baby Homespun (2 skeins)
(or 1 skein regular Homespun yarn)
Bernat Baby Coordinates (2 skeins - same color or two different colors)
(Hold 1 strand Homespun and 2 strands Baby Coordinates together throughout):
Cast on 4 sts
K2, KFB (knit front and back in same stitch), Knit remaining sts
Rpt last row until sides measure 36 inches
(or until you use 1 skein of Homespun Baby)
K2, K2tog, Knit remaining sts
Rpt last row until 4 sts remain
Bind off

Thanks! I may have to use that for my new brothers new baby that is on the way. The first PS I made was with Caron Simply Soft that I bought myself. This time, I used the donated church yarn- homespun. I told my mother (who bought the yarn) that the next time they get a donation to spend, they better buy other types of yarn as well!
