Blanket 2 is done!

 I finished my nephew's blanket yesterday! I actually had quite a bit more yarn leftover than I originally thought I would. Surprisingly the ribbon border was where I had the problem. I used almost all of it - I had about an inch leftover. 

 It's hard to tell from the picture but I used a brown ribbon with white stitching on it. I love those two colors together! Hopefully my nephew will get a lot of use out of it but I think it's going to be a little while before I feel like doing a blanket again.

 My next project is going to be hats. One of my favorite radio stations, Air1, is partnering with an organization called Cure International to provide knit hats to Afghanistan children. I hope to get at least a couple of hats done before the deadline of February 15th.


  1. I love this blanket. I've thought of making it for those times when I just need some good TV knitting. Looks great with the ribbon.

    1. Thanks! It's definitely a good project to do while watching TV. I also liked it because I could set it down whenever and not lose my place. The only drawback to the blanket is the tediousness. I was really struggling to finish it when it was about 80% of the way done.

  2. Hi! Visiting from sundae scoop. This is darling.. love colors! Homemade blankets are the best too :)

    If you get a chance I would love for you to share this at my Friday link party going on now :)
