However, I did finish a blanket for my niece, and since Caribbean Princess asked if I would share my projects, I thought it might be time to do that.
This is what the blanket looks like:
You can see the detail of the pattern better in this photo:
The color is a bit off here - the true color is more like the one above.
Ideally, it would have been a baby blanket. But since I didn’t learn to knit until she was three and I didn’t start the blanket right away, by the time I finally completed it, she was six. Ah well, she could use it for her dolls instead, I thought. But she came up with a better idea—she put it over her pillow and uses it to sleep on. It’s more of a pillow cover than a blanket. It’s fine though since it’s being used and she loves it. That’s all that matters.
The yarn is made from bamboo, so it is very soft. Perfect for a pillow cover!
I have the same yarn in a different color for a second blanket, for her sister. I’m hoping to start on that very soon (and hopefully get it done before she’s six). In the meantime, I am working on a special project for a friend, which I will write about once it is done.
