Garter Stich Comfort Blanket
If you've read my other recent post about getting a headache from the smell of the yarn, you might have been curious as to what I was knitting. Well, I am knitting a simple blanket, following this pattern I found on Ravelry:

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...omfort-blanket

This is the first pattern I've ever followed and will be done with my Blossom Street: Wild Meadow (pink) yarn. I don't know who it'll be for yet. Maybe the dogs? I suppose I could make it for the cat, but he's a boy. I doubt he'd mind the color, seeing as cats don't see reds and pinks all that well, let alone grasps the concept that it's a feminine color.

Anyways, I am learning how to do yarn overs (which will result in increases every row), and knitting multiple stitches together (when the time comes to decrease) with this pattern. I already knew how to do yarn overs and knitting together stitches, though, so it won't be a huge stretch. It's good for learning how to do a very beginning lace type pattern though.

That's a lovely pattern and wonderful yarn to use for it. Garter stitch isn't easy to do well but is so beautiful to see and feel. Glad the yarn is working out.

So was it an allergic reaction or was it allergies?

That's a beautiful blanket you've chosen to do. Can't wait to see your finished product!

Garter stitch isn't easy to do well? I find it incredibly easy to do well. I was told my edges were straight and neat. Something that beginners don't usually have.
