23 february, 2007

Experimenting with color combinations, proportions, and construction techniques for a baby blanket based on rectangles of knit/purl stitches.  I still have a long way to go, but know more today than I did yesterday.  It's the process, my friends, the process.

Yarn: Tahki's Cotton Classic -- still love this yarn   
Needles: US 6
Gauge: About 5.75 stitches per inch in knit/purl pattern
Stitch: A variety of knit/purl stitch combinations.  Some based on previous swatches.

The combination of texture and bright colors will be fascinating for a baby. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you! How did you achieve the row of contrasting turquoise? I cannot for the life of me figure it out! I love your blog, it is such an inspiration

Beautiful. I would love to see what the whole thing does when it is washed.

Positively off the map beautiful. I love the unexpected colours. How did you join them? I, too, cannot figure it out.

love your blog and all the useful info you share here. I am looking for a pattern (toe up sock on 2 circulars) I am a new sock group member and so far haven't found a pattern.

Is that a 3-needle bindoff join? Inquiring minds want to know.

I am working on a log cabin construction baby blanket, and have challenged myself by only using reversible stitch patterns. It has been fun - I am using Rowan Denim cotton in dark indigo, light blue and beige. Being creative and mixing the colors has been great too!
