More Blankets!

For a while, I was totally obsessed with making blankets! I think that is waning now because boy, does it take a long time to make a blanket!! 

I started this gray beauty for my husband but while making it, which took forever, he decided he liked something else better, so this one is now mine. It is made with two strands of #4 yarn so it did work up faster than most blankets. However since it is knitted and I knit slowly it still took a very long time. 

This pattern was part of Leisure Arts free pattern Friday, if you sign up for the knitting or/and crochet newsletters you will get a free pattern every Friday!! 

Up next is a crochet blanket. I made this one for my mom. Being crochet, it should have gone faster but this was a little fiddly so it did take a while and it was a yarn eater for sure! You can find this free pattern on Ravelry. This works up into such a lovely family heirloom. 


  1. I love these! Nice pattern. The blue one is super cute.

  2. I like these patterns a lot. Usually I use an Afghan hook for these (never knitted a blanket), but I am going to attempt a knitted one. It's for a baby, so it'll be slow going knitting with sport weight yarn, but I'm up for the challenge!
