Ta da!

A couple of weeks ago I posted that I wanted to knit something like this blanket

Well, here is my finished project

I'm still learning, but I'm quite pleased with this creamy, cozy, gorgeousness!  DD said she wanted it about 8 rows into knitting, so this one will go to her :-)

I already have the yarn to make myself I still want one for my sofa.  This one turned out just a bit chunkier than I really wanted so my next yarn is similar, maybe just a touch thicker, but I am not going to double it this time and see how it turns out. The yarn color for the next blanket is also a bit more of an "oatmeal" color. I got it on sale last weekend at Michaels where they were having a buy one get one 50% off plus another 25% off your order. So, instead of paying $7 per skein, I got them for $3.94 each.  Same deal on the yarn for the blanket above.

I think it's safe to say I'm hooked on knitting now, though we'll have to see how much I can stick with it when I decide to try something harder than a big rectangle, haha!


  1. Wow, it's beautiful! Looks so cozy!

  2. well done, I am impressed. I would love to learn to knit and crochet.

  3. I am so impressed - I am great with scarves, but have a horrible time with afghans since they seem so intimidating (I make a lot of mistakes and don't want to rip out 200 stitches). That is beautiful!!! The one afghan I made my daughter stole too :)

  4. Lovely, OneFamily! I cannot believe you are so new to knitting.

  5. OMG! Gorgeous! Can't wait to see the next one! I crochet, and just can't get the hang of using 2 needles! You go, girl! :-)
