Yay! Finished and ready to send to my buddy for her soon-to-be-born baby.
I’ve started the baby blanket for Erin, take three. The first two go rounds I frogged for various reasons, and I’m not sad I did that now. The first one, the pattern was too hard for novice-me to follow, the second, the yarn was too thin, and now this one, the third, the yarn is just right! The pattern is Charity Windham’s hexagon baby blanket and Kristen at GoodKnitKisses has put up a VERY helpful loom-along vid on YouTube which has made this process SO much easier. Honestly, those vids are life savers. So I’m about a quarter into it, and I’m quite enjoying it. Here’s a photo of it in progress. The cat had *just* turned his head as I clicked, a nanosecond beforehand, he’d been sniffing at the loom, hahaha.
I’m using Lion Brand Jiffy Thick and Quick yarn in Salem, and a cheap $2 blue I got from a shop down the road. The blue is 8 ply, so I’ve been using two strands at once to compliment the 12 ply chunky of the Lion yarn.
