XO


Here is a bit more detail on the baby blanket I knit for Nicole.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: 5 skeins of Cascade 220 superwash in 'Apple Green'
Needles: Size 8
Stitch count: 193 across the cable/lace section
Rows: alot!
Mods: I would make wider borders next time around

And what have we here....?

It looks like some Spunky Super Nova in 'Popsicle'!
2.5 mm needles going toe up! See you at the top!

Happy knitting everyone!

Pssst: Our first Sanjaya-free week of AI is tonight!!!

nice job on the blanket! i love the "hugs and kisses" cable.

don't you love how cascade is always there for you, solid and reliable, whenever you need it? i just finished one project with 220 and have two more planned (in 128 and sierra).

I stumbled upon your blog while looking for something completely different - but I had to stop and read when I saw the pic of the green blanket for Nicole - Absolutely Stunning!
I knit myself and I am completely obsessed with lace lately. The leaves caught my attention.
I really like the way the X's & O's stand out.
Great Job!
