FO: Kai's Blanket

Pattern: Baby Chalice Blanket
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy, Beach Fog colorway

The blanket is for my granddaughter Kai, who is due February 13. I chose this yarn because of the colors – my son and his wife are avid surfers and I thought they’d like the beach colors. Unfortunately, the yarn is not as soft as I had heard, and not what I would have chosen for a baby blanket if I had been able to touch it before buying. It softened up quite a bit with blocking, though, and will probably soften more with washing. I think the pattern is lovely, and the colors are gorgeous. Details are on my Ravelry page:

The colorway and the pattern work well together. Too bad about the lack of softness; I looked up some yarn reviews and others compared it to Lorna’s Laces which I love but its not as soft as alpaca and merino.

:inlove: Oh that is gorgeous!! Love the beachy colors, too!

It’s very nice…just love that pattern and you’ve done it beautifully!:yay: :yay: :yay:

I too love the colorway. And I find the pattern interesting, in that mostly this leaf pattern is done without the interior shaping at the “tip” of the leaf. Very nice.

This isn’t knitting! This is ART! Wonderful work, Slim! Perfect colorway for the blanket, and for your kid’s lifestyle! They will love it!

Beautiful!! I love the color and stitch choice!!

WOW :heart: The blankie is absolutely beautiful. Your work is so inspiring.

That is so beautiful!

Oh wow, that is so beautiful! :heart:

Well, the lace pattern is called “chalice” so it’s not really a leaf pattern, although it does resemble a leaf, doesn’t it.

The color is pretty and the pattern is great! I’ll have to keep that one for future projects. :slight_smile:

Oh, Slim that is beautiful! Doesn’t Kai mean “ocean”? I think it’s perfect, and hopefully with some love and trips through the washer it will soften up.

It’s just beautiful!

Very, very pretty. Gorgeous work as usual.

Gorgeous blanket :inlove: Love the pattern and the colors!
