Yay! I've finished with the baby blankets and moved on to my next project. This one is a Christmas present for my co-worker.
This is a pretty easy project, and I am really pleased with how it's working up so far. I hope to get it done by next weekend, Monday night at the latest.
The blanket is just one big granny square. But the twist is that I am using two strands of yarn at once. I am making it in black and turquoise, using a size K hook.
It is turning out as a nice solid thick blanket, which is exactly what I hoped for. And the double strand effect looks really spiffy.
Here are a few shots so you can see:
Also, since my co-worker has a cat, Wally has taken it upon himself to test-drive the blanket for Skittles. I think he approves:
And yes, rest assured, I will be washing this before it goes to its new owner.
Anyhoo, hope all is well with you guys. Have a great week!
