Acrylic Blankie

Just a simple cat blankie with yarn donated to Cats Protection.

Needle Holder

This ‘blankie’ was quick work with acrylic yarn which came free with a magazine.  It’s going to become a holder for my circular needles.  Watch this space!

Laura’s Christmas Blankie

I’m very pleased with this one.  I bought the yarn in the January Sales – it’s Rowan Romance in the lilac colourway.  And it’s the first textured blankie I’ve made (ie not just garter stitch) I’ve made and is going to be a bedspread for my room, once I’ve been out to get a needle with which to sew away the ends.

Furry Cat Blankie

Furry BlankieThis blankie is just a bit of fun.  It’s made from Sirdar’s Foxy yarn.

Aestlight Shawl

Have you ever given in to a moment of madness?  I think I may just have experienced one!  I was listening to the Stitches in Time podcast and the lady mentioned that she’d knit an Aestlight Shawl.  It sounded nice and, when I looked it up on Ravelry, it is beautiful.  And it sounded like an easy knit for this blankie maker.  After all, how hard can a garter stitch shawl with a bit of edging be?  OK, it’s sock yarn and I’m more used to chunky knits but I thought, what the heck?  And went shopping for yarn.  And then I bought the pattern.  And then I looked at the pattern.  I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew but, if the worst comes to the worst, I can make blankies out of the yarn I’ve bought and the pattern only cost me £3.10.

Karabella Blankie

Karabella BlankieYes, it’s another blankie!  I really enjoyed the Karabella yarn which was gifted to me at the Glasgow Central Stitch’n Bitch.

Purple Blankie

Purple BlankieJust a simple, purple blankie.  I really enjoyed working with this colour.
