Patchwork carriage blanket

I started working on this baby blanket from my newest favorite book “The Knitter’s Book of Yarn” this week. I am using o-wool, colors 420202, 430203, 230002, size 7 needles. I am enjoying this, it has 4 patterns that are done in each strip: stripes, stockinette, seed and six-stitch cable squares.

I only have the first strip done. It is curling on the edges, so it will need to be blocked prior to attaching to the next strip.

I still have not sewn up the baby cardigan…well, I started to sew it up, using the mattress stitch, and was so excited about doing that stitch, that I sewed up the entire left side, and didn’t leave a space for the sleeves…so it is in time out right now! LOL

Not smoking is going good! There are times when I need to stand on my head (weird, but it helps!)

Here is a picture of my adorable nephew! His Daddy (my baby brother) was entertaining himself by putting eye glass frames on him while his wife was getting her eyes checked!

  1. The colors on your blanket are marvelous! (stitches look pretty perfect too!) Sorry about your job but a HUGE congrats on the smoking thing! Sort of a this is the cookie, this is the crumble, eh? Well I guess you can’t expect too much – after all, it’s still January! sigh! February will be better! LOL! (ya, like I know that for sure!)

  2. Absolutely love the baby pic, what a doll! Enough to want to pinch his cheeks to death heheheh.. Job – don’t sweat it you find something else, plus look on the bright side more knitting/weaving time( ha.) Good job on the smoking front, I’m totally impressed and wish you and hubby tons of luck to beat it.

  3. Hello. I was just wondering how your patchwork carriage blanket came along. I am thinking about it for my next project 🙂
