Hi frieknds! (I'm going to start this word if it kills me) I'd like a make a very simple blanket for my little sister who's going to be a freshman at Boston Univ. in the fall and was hoping for some advice. My experience thus far has been limited to making a blanket for myself using the knit stitch exclusively and alternating 2 balls of one color with 1 ball of another. What I envision for the new blanket is a block of red, then a block of white with the letters BU in the middle of the white, then another block of red. Thinking of using this yarn: http://www.elann.com/productdisp.asp...Price&Count=15
If anyone has suggestions on the best technique for doing this, or any other advice, I'd love to hear it! Thanks!
That's pretty yarn, but be aware that it is not machine washable. Washing an afghan by hand is a huge job. You might want to find a machine washable wool if that is the fiber you want to use. Unless your sister is big on handwashing.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
