My first posted project

BrentGC's picture

I've attached my first real project. This is a baby blanket I've made for the expected granddaughter of a friend of ours. It was done on a Knifty Knitter loom (41 pegs) and took me about a month to do. It's done in garter stitch in three strips, and an I-cord, and then sown together. I finally got everything sown together after midnight last night!

The colors were suggested by the grandmother (our friend), and I love the combination.

My next project is on ACTUAL needles! It's a baby kimono I found online, a very simple design that should be a good one for my first needle project. I may or may not pass it on to the baby, depending on how it turns out.

Thanks for all of your support and knowledge and experience. Every day is a learning experience when I log onto the site.

A job well done, Brent! Great

A job well done, Brent! Great job. I love how the I-Cord edge looks. I don't know how it works on your loom but using knitting needs, it is sloooooow. But, well worth it of how great it looks.

I really like the composition. I have a blanket crocheted by an aunt in what looks like the same colors.

And, unless the kimono comes out a "three armed sweater", gift it! The time put in by friends and family is far more treasured than perfection.
