Productivity Thy Name is Nennie

As promised... I've got something to show you!


The green leafy blanket is off the needles, and if I do say so myself, it is lookin' goooooood!


Pattern: Pram Rug with Trailing Leaves from Patons Heirloom Collection
Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in "Honeydew" (10 balls)
Needles: US 7
Notes: I added an extra repeat to the pattern to make the pattern just a little wider- and I'm so pleased with the results. The yarn is really soft and almost velvetty to touch- it's perfect as a baby blanket yarn. (Not to mention mostly cotton, so blocking friendly.) Let's look at it again shall we?


So- with the 3rd blanket of the year off the needles, I feel confident that I'm on track to stay on top of the blanket demand this fall. However, to reward myself for all the hard work knitting this May- I'm taking the week off to knit something other than baby blankets. I'm knitting hats, because HOLY GOD am I falling behind on the grand total! Plus it gives me a little time to think about the next pattern- which I need to start pretty quickly here.

With all that in mind, and precious hat time quickly disappearing, I must dash!

I love the blanket. It is really pretty. You seem like you can churn those suckers out! I can't even finish one!!

I live in Australia but have this pattern and was thinking of doing exactly as you have already done!!! Add a repeat and knit in cotton! I have a bub due in Feb 2011 so need to start now- time is so short with 3 other littlies. I was hoping you might share how many stitches you started with from the top. I am still to work out the repeat so any advice would be welcome. It turned out so beautifully! I can't wait to have one for my bub.
