WIP: Boucle Baby Blanket
During my preparation for the show I’m attending in Denver, I realized that I actually only have two finished baby blankets to take – and they’re both pink. Over the course of the past year, I’ve made over a dozen blankets, but they’ve all been commissioned or given as gifts, which is fantastic, but it’s left me scrambling for a little variety for my table. So, of course, a trip to the yarn store was in order. Okay, so I went to just about every yarn store in town, just for kicks, but my yarn of choice for this project was Baby Bee Baby Boucle in a white and blue variegated shade called blue boy. It was on sale, too, so how could I resist? I’m actually almost done with it now, despite the fact that I couldn’t just simply work it as the variegation played out and have been creating more ends to tie in than I would otherwise have to (I’m a big fan of strategically random variegation). It’s still worked up fairly quickly, though, but then that was why I selected this particular yarn and design to begin with. So here’s a little peek at my newest project.
