Would it be kosher to modify this pattern into a baby blanket? I think it would look really nice...

The only thing I would worry about is that little fingers and toes might get all caught up in the holes in the pattern.

it would make a gorgeous lap quilt if you can get it really well blocked.  i'm in a slump with my branchy cowl..... with the onset of fall, i've returned to my beloved sewing machine.  i'll never get that monster finished

My mum taught me agaes ago that babies tend to like putting their fingers through the holes in blankets; certainly my little nephews were constantly doing it with the blankets I knitted for them. A security thing, I guess. So far, no problems on that front (THANK GOODNESS). Wink

i'm fixing to start this as soon as my silky wool gets here. i can't wait to knit something more than just garter and stockinette.

i think it would be really sweet as a baby blanket for a newborn. they really don't move around too much for the first two or three months anyways. though i'm not sure how much warmth lace is going to give.

I just started Branching Out in red Silky Wool for a friend of the family's christmas present, and another one in a pinkish red silk for me.  Reading through this thread has been very very helpful - I didn't have to rip back at all, but the lifelines are still a good safety measure.

I'll post some pictures when I've got a bit more of each scarf done (I'm at about 5 repeats on the Silky Wool one, and about 4 on the other silk one).

I made one of these with a blue with rainbow-multi bits yarn, and it was hard for me to see the pattern. It still looks lovely, though, and I thought it was just because it was quite thick at some points.

I'm doing another in white acrylic, and the pattern still isn't coming out as nice as most people have it. Am I doing something wrong? Is the yarn just too thick?

Amethyst,
There was some discussion a few pages back about yarnovers. Seems if you do them incorrectly (like I had been doing) the lace pattern doesn't pop out. Just a shot- but you might want to check it out.

You mean where it says that yo just means "bring the yarn to the front" and not "bring yarn to the front and knit one"? I'm definitely doing the former, not the latter. Unless you mean something else that I'm not seeing. Thanks for your help, by the way.  Grin

Edit: I've been doing yo's wrong. I learned how to do them with the Knit This! DVD, and it tells you to wrap it the other way from what knittinghelp.com says. Blech.

ahhh good, (looks like you were editing while I was typing to you).
Hope that helps, it should open up the lace pattern quite a bit. I bet it will be yummy in that yarn!

Here is mine, I saw this on Knitty a few months ago when I picked up my sticks again and knew I had to try it.  It was my first attempt at lace, and it was pretty easy to knit.  I used a pale yellow acrylic yarn (looked like baby yarn, can't remember now) and was thinking if I made a bunch of these and quilted the pieces together, it would make a cool cover for something.

When I find a nicer yarn, I am definitely making another, longer one.
