At The Knitting GarageThe Building Block blanket is almost done. With the last square knitted up and most of the seams finished. One final seam will take no time at all on Sunday.
|Block #9 is done :)|
|Our blanket is very colorful|
We would love to see how you are coming along with your blanket. You could bring it in to one of our Monday night knit nights to show off your squares.
|Fun knit time last Monday|
Remember we have knit night from 6-8pm every Monday. You can also just drop in briefly to buy yarns or anything else from the shop. The evening hours should accommodate all of you working Moms (and Dads).
|Chevron Baby Blanket|
I finished the Chevron Baby blanket for my grand-niece who is due to make her appearance this summer.
I had enough yarn left over to make her a bonnet. When I saw little Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana coming out of hospital I had a very close look at the blanket (a simple lace stitch blanket) and head-wear (a garter stitch and cable bonnet) and decided that my nephew's baby should have a bonnet, too.

When I looked for a pattern, I came across the Little Shell Lace Baby Bonnet by Dawn Adcock. It uses the same weight yarn I had used for the blanket (worsted) and is a free pattern. It took me just a few hours to finish and I think it looks very sweet.
|at one point I was worried that I had not enough yarn, but it was plenty!|
|Just needs a ribbon (from A L Stickle!)|
|I can't wait to see pictures of my grand-niece wearing this :)|
