|Little Johnny's Patchwork Blankie by Trudy Evans|
While I'm deciding on my next sewing project, I'm just about to the half way point of my pink blanket I've been making such slow progress on until recently. The pattern called for a 36in. square blanket, but I think I want to make it a little bigger than 36in., but I haven't decided how much bigger yet. Since the blanket is knit on the bias I get to pick! I am planning on doing about 10 or 20 extra rows so it should measure about 37 or 38in. square when completed. My favorite part about this pattern is that once you pass the half way point, you feel like you are progressing incredibly fast because with each row you have one less stitch to knit. So fingers crossed I will be able to get a new pink blanket posted soon! That is if I'm not distracted by my new knitting project!
I normally won't do two knitting projects at a time, but this is an exception to the rule. I admit, my second knitting project is a greedy one, it's for me. I'm in need of a boy baby blanket for my house so I am knitting one just like the picture here that I found on Ravelry. I'm super excited about this pattern. It allows you do knit all sorts of different patterns, but without having to do each square separately. I literally just started this last night so I have a feeling it is going to take me a while to get through it, but I will try to photograph the progression of it.
