I am finished and I am very please with the way my blanket turned out. I wiil wrap it up and give to DD for Easter. My DH was very impressed with it last night. I learned so much from this project. I can’t wait to start another
Oh I really like it! especially the part where you make the colors go around in a spiral. Interesting combo of colors too! I bet your daughter will really enjoy it. Now you can begin your next project. What will it be?
It’s beautiful, Luv!
:psst: [COLOR=Gray]Your photo needs to be resized though. [/COLOR]:teehee:
It looks lovely! Very pretty colours.
Luvmykid - nice!! You did a great job, fun colors. Isn’t is fun to finish??
I’m not done yet. Its become my revision blanket, I work on it while listening to the lectures I recorded - breaks up the boredom a bit and I pay more attention to the lecture if I have something to do with my hands. I’ve stuck a photo on my blog.
Thank you for the compliments. I have started some pet pals bunnies for Easter, a market bag and I searching for the next big thing. So many choices in my que. Will let post on the stash train when I decide.
@ luvmykid28: it’s lovely!
@ rachejm: keep up the good work.
time for me to pickup my blanket again.
Well, I have been thinking about my next LC ever since I finished my 1st one. I started it today. I am very excited about this one, because I am donating it to the NICU in the hospital where I gave birth to my son. More details to come…
Way to go Luv! The LC is a satisfying project, and a donation of a LC will be really really satisfying!!! You’ll be sure and show it to us before sending if off to its new home, right?
[B]Artlady[/B]: Your DGS and DGD look so thrilled with their blankets! It must be so much fun for you to knit for them.
Very pretty blanket, [B]luvmykid[/B]! I’m still waiting to hear the reaction for your DD when she finds out that blanket really is hers. :teehee:
I am still working on mine :knitting: – I’m about 3/4 of the way done with log #4. I’ve even taken a picture of it, but it’s still in the camera.
Now that I’m back to work (since Monday) it’s going to be harder for me to make time to work on it. Last night I was just staring at it while nursing the baby, wondering when I would get to work on it again. :pout:
Pretty soon I’m going to be in this thread all by myself. :eyebrow: :roflhard:
Sakura don’t worry about the knitting, it will be there when you have time. New babies are very time consuming and give way more gratification.
I finished my striped stockinette blankey. It sits here on a double bed, so you can get an idea of its size.
the bottom is stockinette, with 3 rows reverse stockinette. Both sides are 3 knit stitches.
and the top is all reverse stockinette:
I like to distinguish a top from a bottom on an afghan, so you don’t accidentally tuck the stinky feet part under your chin, but that’s just a silly hangup of mine.
Great job! Wow! That is a big blankie!!! Good colors, lots of fun!!
I love that blanket Woodi.
Oooo pretty one, Woodi!
I am just today starting another blanket…in the log cabin design, but not being as creative as I was with the first one. This one is in beige, green, white, tan and brown. Pics to come later…
Well, I gave it to DD the night before Easter. I told her that I didn’t want her to think that the Easter Bunny knit it for her. She loved it.
That is great!! She looks like she loves it!!
You got a winner there! looks much loved already.
Here’s my newest one, not following the pattern originally started, more of a square (so far)…
Not sure what to do next, color-wise. I don’t plan ahead, just like to fly by the seat of my pants, so to speak.
I think I’ll need to buy more colors, for a light/dark effect. Maybe a solid darker brown, and a darker green. For the light, I’ll need white and maybe a paler yellow? Off to shop!
