The baby blanket I carried with me all summer is done! From dock to beach to hammock - it was with me much of the last few months, growing and growing so that it eventually covered my lap. It's rather, um, large...partially because I just couldn't stop touching the incredibly soft goodness of that yarn, and kept finding myself casting on just one more skein of the extras I had ordered. There will be plenty of blanket for snuggling babe up in. I can't wait.
The details: It's the Project Linus Security Blanket from Knitting for Peace. I think the pattern is a modified feather and fan stitch pattern. Knit in Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton, sand colorway. I love this yarn.
So, speaking of knitting, I've dipped my toe in the vast expanse that is Ravelry. Um, wow! I'm a little overwhelmed at the possibilities there - and frankly looking with half-closed eyes for fear of wanting to dive in too fully (so much goodness!).
Cheers to fall knitting! And the overambitious casting on of too many projects at once!
