As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a little obsessed with knitting chunky blankets right now. They’re just so squishy and warm and beautiful and warm and soft…and…warrrrrrm!

I revamped my snowflake knitting pattern. I went back and knit it again, and changed a few measurements and stitch counts (just a little — the old one will still work, but I like this one better).
I finally did it. I conquered my fear of fair isle knitting and now I’m hooked. This seems to happen a lot with yarn work. When I mastered granny squares last year, I spent months crocheting the heck out of them. Granny square coasters. Granny square pillows. Granny square afghans.
The first thing I ever taught myself to knit was a baby blanket. Actually, that’s not entirely true. The very first thing I knit was a scarf. It was 15 stitches across, and all I did was knit back and forth for what seemed like forever until it was long enough to suit me. I wore it […]
