L & B Yarn Co. is collecting hats and lap throws for kids with heart defects and cancer in loving memory of Andi Nagelschneider, M.D. Thanks to many generous donations we have already collected over 15 hats and 5 blankets. If you are interested in donating, hats and blankets can be either knitted or crocheted and can be children to adult sizes small, medium, or large. The yarn must be washable and soft if you decide to add an embellishment like a button or flower please attach with a safety pin style stitch marker so it can be removed when washing. Girls like bright colorful hats and boys prefer darker colors with a bright stripe or two. OU, OSU and OKC Thunder colors are also popular.
If you are interested in the pattern we knitted in the photograph just click here. Thanks to everyone for your donations, we appreciate you! Donations will be collected through January 10th, 2016. -B
New sock yarn shipment from Manos! Alegria is an easy-care blend of ultra-soft superwash merino with durable polyamide.
Its “hand” is remarkably soft and resilient, and the bright, playful colorways would make exciting baby projects as well as socks.
After much discussion about this pattern one afternoon at the shop I decided I had to make it. I love the raised stripes, they make the blanket more unique than just a typical chevron pattern, although I love a chevron no matter what. The garter stripes truly make the color pop out at you, it also gives baby a nice texture to play with. You can have lots of fun picking colors for the 3 different stripes of color or this would even be a great stash buster. I decided to use Cascade 220 Superwash, 5 balls total: 2 balls for my main color and 1 for each of my 3 raised accent stripes.
I also wanted my blanket a little wider, so I cast on 164 stitches for an extra repeat, putting my blanket at 30″ wide instead of 23″ wide, the perfect size for a crib blanket or toddler blanket. If you are interested in making this blanket just click here. I will also be giving an in depth description of this project at our next F.E.A.T. Wednesday, July 15th at 1:00 so please some join us! -B
