Baby Blankets November 15, 2009

Here is the finished edition of baby blanket no. 1.

Dewey 073  Baby Blanket no. 1 – Knit with 2 strands of sock wool – 1 strand multicoloured, 1 strand plain – size 3  100 cm circular needle but not knit in a circle.  It was knit going back and forth all the time – garter stitch.  It’s packed now for our move across the street – I’ll put in the measurements when we get unpacked. 

Here is the remaining stash of knitting yarn – 50 balls of wool.

Dewey 070  Remaining stash of knitting yarn – 50 balls.

How many more baby blankets will I knit?  I’ve started my 2nd one so we’ll see how I get on.  I have 112 stitches for the 2nd one.  I am making it slightly narrower –  maybe 2 inches narrower – than baby blanket no. 1.

Dewey 074  the stash all packed and 3 different projects in the cat food boxes – all ready to be moved across the street to our temporary home

Might as well be getting some fun and some statistics out of this knitting, packing, and moving process.

    Nice blanket. That’s quite a stash and should keep you busy for quite some time!

    Happy Moving!

    Eek – the packers got ahead of me and packed the cat boxes that had my needles and 3 knitting projects – they had to tear open a box to rescue them. Now they are safely residing in our new temporary home across the street.

      I’ve been reading and enjoying your blog for a while now. We used to live in Kenya and we travelled all over East Africa, probably before you were born.

    Great idea. I was given a bunch of acrylic yarn that I want to make children’s blankets for a charity over here. I keep thinking I’ll save it for weaving, but maybe a simple knitted stitch would keep my hands productively busy until we finish our house projects so I can get to my loom.
