August 4th, 2010 I started out on a “L” hook, but decided the weave was too loose. So I went down a hook size and it looks much better.
This one went so fast you wouldn’t believe it. It’s a large-gauge yarn and an easy stitch, but yikes! The only part where I had trouble was the border. Even still, I only had to fudge a little bit. Usually, I’m very
anal precise about these things, but I have no idea how to make it work perfectly this time around. And, as it’s not going to be for me and even I can hardly notice it, I’m okay with a little fudge.
And the colours….OH, geez, the colours! They seem to work perfectly for this pattern. I intend to take pictures tomorrow. I hope they do the blanket justice.
April 3, 2013 So I’ve been trying to sell this sucker for a few years, but it didn’t happen. It’s soft and beautiful colours, but I think the boutique I was trying to sell my things at just wasn’t the right clientele. So I’ve been hanging on to it for a while, now.
I found out a couple months ago that one of my best friends is pregnant with twin girls! So I decided give this one to her and work up a second blanket, the No-Brainer Baby Blanket in Marble Chunky II, which I had already kinda started working on months earlier. A blanket for each twin and I only had to make one new one! How perfect is that?
The last couple of pictures are her opening the blankets at the baby shower this last weekend.
