Sadie's Tumbling Blocks Blankie
Tumbling Blocks Blankie
This blanket is hand knit using entraloc technique and was a gift to my daughter's good friend having her first baby. This was a fun technique and I love the results.
I used Blue Sky Alpaca worsted dyed and organic cotton in 6 colors-blue, bright yellow, green, light yellow, nut and bone and used Colonial interchangeable needle size 9. The yarn is from Webs in Massachusetts and the needles were a gift to me. I chose this yarn for the softness and durability and also the color choices.
The original design was from Lion Brand but I improvised because I couldn't figure out the pattern. I looked up Eunny Jang's tutorial on entraloc and used that as my jumping off point. I chose these colors because we did not know the sex of the baby at the time.
As stated above, after frogging the original pattern, I moved right along with Eunny's instructions and it took about 4 weeks to complete.
I love to knit and especially love to knit for babies and children and have been at it for over 30 years. There is still so much to learn and new techniques I am still mastering. Knitting is ever changing and I love to see the new fashions and then create them.
