Unfinished Projects

This is a new feature I'm starting in the hopes that it will motivate me to finish some of the many projects that I've started.

First up is the baby blanket I started knitting in February. I was inspired by this blanket and tutorial from The Purl Bee.

I altered my pattern a bit and decided against doing the stripes because the yarn I found was making such a pretty pattern.

I'm using Yarn Bee First Love yarn in lovely, and US 10 circular needles.
I cast on 115.
Purl the first and last stitch of each row to make a border, and just do a regular knit stitch for the rest.
So far I am on my second skein of yarn, and I know I will need at least one more.

Today I worked on a few rows while Amelia and I watched Mulan.
I'll keep you posted on my progress. If you would like to make your own blanket and have any questions feel free to ask, and I'll do my best to answer.

What unfinished project do you need to work on? I'd love to see it! Leave a link in the comments.

  1. I'm in "finishing unfinished project" mode as well! How did I end up with so many half-finished pieces?! Your blanket is beautiful - it will be good to get it done and be able to use it, right?!

  2. Yes! I think for the next one I do I will use bigger needles and chunkier yarn so it goes a bit faster. :)
