This is my 6th blankey for the blitz.  It's flannel both sides with 1/2" batting, 44"x42". The little teddy critter will be going with it to CRR. Some one will enjoy snuggling with them.

On the home stretch

The blanket reached 36 inches on one side so I've started the decreases. "Down hill" from here on!

Stash Buster

I'm almost at the half way mark on this blanket. It's the Diagonal Box Stitch (see sidebar for pattern). This is probably close to 18 oz of acrylic ww yarn. This blanket will be square, but the pattern can be adapted to make a rectangle.

And that makes six....

Finished up the Granny Square blanket yesterday. Each square was 16 inches, with borders added it makes the blanket over 36 inches across. Washed and dried it and it's all nice and soft and drapey.

Two More Squarez

Two more 16 inch squares finished. The fourth square is about half way done. Then putting them together followed by an edging around them to finish off the blanket.

Some finished blankets and a start...

My daughter finished this one.
The bottom two are from a Log Cabin Round Robin a result of the work of many people.

This one I started a couple days ago to use up odds and ends. It's about 16 inches across at this point.

2 blankets

Here is a photo of 2 of the 6 blankets I've made for the blitz. Nothing spectacular, just soft and warm.

It's a start...

The afghan I decided on will feature several different panels with several different cable designs. I love doing cables & thought the panels would make a nice warm blanket. Should have it done by February? Here's hoping...

Blanket Patterns?

Anyone have favorite patterns?

I have used the Lion Brand Pound of Love hooded baby blanket pattern both knitted and crocheted. With the hood addition as an option. Both patterns look nice. They can certainly be adapted to be larger in finished size. The crocheted version is nice and puffy so it should be warm.

Looks like the log cabin patterns would be interesting to try as well and the combinations can be so pretty.

Blankets do get to an awkward size for me and then I can only work on them for the short time that I am home at night after my "chores". Not that I have made that many.

Suggestions on how to do the squares? I have heard it is easier if you have a cardboard square that you can reference for the size. I don't crochet that much so I have been having a problem with varying tension in the squares I have done so far, a bit of waving going on.

Here is the first finished blanket from the Log Cabin group. It's around 36 inches square, so will be perfect for a newborn for a year or so.
