sunny baby blanket for baby mac
Please describe and tell us about your baby blanket.
It is a bright happy yellow color. Nice textured pattern, but easy enough that a beginner could make it.
What yarn and needles did you use and where did you get them? Why did you pick this yarn?
yarn- plymouth encore DK; needles-US 8. Ordered the yarn online from royal yarns. Used my Knit Pick interchangable harmony needles. Used this yarn because it was the suggested yarn.
Tell us more about your design. Was it inspired by another pattern? Why did you pick those colors?
The pattern is 'sunny baby blanket' by Lucie Sinkler. I found this free pattern on ravelry. I picked the yellow b/c it was pretty in the pattern pictures and wanted a 'safe' color in case baby mac showed up to be a little girl, lol.
Did you run into any problems when knitting your baby blanket? How long did it take you to knit?
The pattern was super easy to follow. It took me about a week and a half working on it in the evenings after work.
Anything else you'd like to share about your baby blanket or knitting in general?
Knitting is my stress reliever. I love knitting for family and friends. There's nothing better than giving someone a handmade item to show them how much you care!
