I haven’t written in my blog since JUNE 2016??? Wow, that is embarrassing. Not only is that embarrassing, but where in the world did the last year go? At least winter 2017 is over.
Knitting…I have been doing my best to keep up with my knitting of baby blankets even though my latest hobby seems to be bouncing from doctor appointments to other doctor appointments. It gets a bit old. But, I have been knitting; two are chunky weights (yarn weight “Bulky” or #5 weight), and one worsted weight.
As always, the patterns can be found at:
This is affectionately called “Dapper Diamonds”; knit with a machine washable friendly wool/acrylic yarn blend, this simple yet bold design is a delight to look at and a breeze to knit because of it’s bulky yarn.
mostly knit and purl stitch with an occasional twisted stitch
Rust Orange baby blanket
Perfect for the rustic country decor
Beautiful twisted stitch really sets off the lines
This flashy cabled lattice baby blanket is a deceptively easy repeating cable that creates an heirloom piece that can be cherished for a lifetime. Knitted loosely with a cozy washing machine friendly acrylic, “Lovely Lattice” is a masterpiece to create for most any skill level of knitter.
Our final baby blanket is a simple knit/purl only baby blanket that is an incredible project for the beginner that is ready to make the next step in knitted. Knitted with 100% acrylic Red Heart yarn, this pattern is a delight to the eyes! The traveling lines and the flashy pinwheels are impressive to everyone who looks at it, even the experienced knitter would be delighted to create this charming piece.

So, “The Project” has been launched and I’m very encouraged by the results. About 6 weeks ago, I began creating patterns for the baby blankets that I’ve been making for military members, that I work with, that are welcoming little ones into their lives. After creating the patterns, I began posting them on Etsy as digital downloads at my shop, Cape Cod Stitchery, and have found an element of success that I’m quiet happy with. Three of the four patterns are quite unique because I made them with bulky/chunky yarn (that is incredibly soft and fluffy acrylic yarn that is COMPLETELY washable!) and gender neutral that is perfect for the little ones that could get chilly once the impending winter gets closer to us (if it’s anything like last winter, something really warm will be needed). Once knitted, I created them to be durable so it would make a perfect floor blanket to put between the chilly floor and a snuggly baby.
Anyway, I’m very proud of how these baby blanket patterns have turned out and I’ve gotten a massive response from the knitting groups that I belong to. Please, take a moment to check them out at:
The following images are for the patterns that are currently available and I’ll be updating my blog as I add more patterns.
