Wraps, plural

Word Lily knits

I’m a little sad I didn’t commemorate Knitting and Crochet Week, but oh well. It’s too late now! I do have a couple finished objects to show off today, though.

First up, a baby blanket I knitted, in the log cabin style.
Asymmetrical Log Cabin Baby Blanket
The lines and edges aren’t really wonky, as they may appear. I blame that illusion on the down comforter, upon which I placed the blanket for the photo before mailing it off.

Log Cabin Baby Blanket casual

It’s about 30 inches square, worked entirely using 100% cotton yarn reclaimed from sweaters. I love using the recycled cotton for things like this, because it’s so very soft and it can be thrown in the washer and dryer for easy care.

Secondly, a small shawl.
Springling Shawlette

This was a test knit for Cosy, for a soon-to-be-released pattern that will feature her hand-dyed yarn. I used her Snapdragon light fingering for this piece; it was a blast to work with!

The shawlette was quick to work up, but it gobbled an impressive amount of yarn. Measurements post-blocking: 48″ x 19″. I used all but 3 yards of the 700-yard skein. I guess that’s garter stitch for ya!

More details on my Ravelry Project Page.

  3. WOW, I love both. I agree, that shawl is STUNNING.

  4. The blanket is adorable and I love that it’s from recycled sweaters. I bet it was a bear to tear them apart though. The shawlette is adorable too. Looks like another pattern I will eventually have to favorite and knit.
