I’ve managed to finish a couple more projects since my last post. One of them is a blanket for one of my nephews.
It’s just a basic garter stitch blanket with an applied i-cord edging. There wasn’t a pattern for it; I just made it up as I went along. It’s Red Heart Comfort yarn. To make the blanket, I used a size 10 circular needle and cast on 150 stitches. Then I worked in garter stitch until I wanted to change colors. At the color changes, I made three stripes with the two colors before continuing with the new color. The color blocks aren’t the same, and there’s no reason for why I changed when I did; I just went with whatever felt right.
The applied i-cord edging was easy to do. I used a pair of size 10 DPNs to add it. This video tutorial helped me a lot. It even took less time to add the edging than I thought it would. After you get into a rhythm, it goes pretty quickly.
I also finished up this group of hedgehogs that needed eyes. You can find the pattern here. I used mostly Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn. The little guy on the left was made with some vintage scrap yarn leftover from another project, not sure what it was now.
Hopefully spring will be here to stay soon. I’m over winter and have been for a long time. Come on, Sunshine!!
