I finished my first knitting project for our little guy – a pop art inspired blanket. (Ravelry link)
Yarns used: Ecological Wool, Noro Kureyon
I’d like to make another of these actually – using some really crazy bright skeins of Noro. 🙂 But, I think this palette is nicely suited for a boy. (Yes. There are pinks and purples in there. I personally think my son can handle a little pink and purple, thankyouverymuch.)
Overall, a fun knit! Since it’s made of individual squares – and each is it’s own different little globe of color – it really broke up the monotony. I’m not usually a blanket knitter, but I really liked creating this. I did end up adding an additional row to the bottom since I had enough yarn. So that makes for 24 squares in total. I used single crochet to assemble the squares and then added a couple of rows of SC to the outer edge to make for a neater finish.
I really like the result and think this sucker will see a lot of use as a stroller blanket… once Austin temps dip down to the chilly part of the thermometer again. Baby Boy Kam will likely be around 6 months old by then. Hee hee. But, hey! We’re prepared!
