Just Call Me Auntie Em!

We have a new nephew! He came a little bit earlier than expected, but luckily, (thanks to all those nights on the sofa with Mom) Blue Blankie is finished and I just needed to get it in the mail this weekend.

Here it is before we sent it off, modeled by my own blankie loving boy. If this blankie gets just half as much lovin as this one has, I will be very happy indeed.


Pattern: Fiber Trends Easy Knit Baby Blankets, Collection 2

Yarn: Plymount Encore Worsted Color 793 Lite Blue (their spelling-not mine!), 5 skeins

Notes: I made the smaller size and it turned out 34" x 40". While doesn't sound that big, this thing really looks big; it is easily a baby/toddler drag around blanket. I think you could take out 2 repeats and make a smaller blankie, and I would probably do that next time.

Overall: enjoyed the pattern, not the yarn, but it is very pretty, very traditional, very washable, very blue, very Blankie-ish.

Signing off for now,

Auntie Em

p.s. I am going to start answering questions in the comments now so if you are anonymous and asked a question last time, be sure to check back in the comments on the last post for your answer!

I love the Wizard of Oz reference--I just found out that a not-so-favorite person at the office is leaving and I can't seem to get the "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" song out of my head.

A belated congrats on finding your lovely quilt at the shot--a true testament to your work. Of all the many quilts that they must have they chose yours!
