This is the second time I’ve started this blanket. I had started it a month or so ago, but set it aside to work on another knitting project. Unfortunately, that other project needs more yarn, which didn’t arrive in time for me to take it with me to work on during my trip to Thailand and New Zealand. (Oh yes, I’m traveling right now! Hadn’t mentioned that yet.)
So, I picked up this project again, saw that it had gone wonky in one section, and subsequently unraveled and restarted it. What you see in the photo here is what I knit during the four films I watched on our flight from Denver to Tokyo.
The pattern is Fluffy Brioche Baby Blanket from The Purl Bee. I’m using Queensland Collection Pima Fresca, which I got for a steal from Tuesday Morning. It doesn’t have an intended recipient yet — I just love knitting with cotton and this was a pattern I had been wanting to try, so I am. Isn’t it lovely? I’m curious to see how the colours play out over the whole blanket.
