My friend picked out this great Blue Sky 100% Organic Cotton Yarn
for her blanket. I was really surprised by how soft a cotton yarn could feel! The only bad thing about it is that it fuzzes on everything it touches. I'm hoping that it will stop with a few washes.Big Bad Baby Blanket:
Pattern: Big Bad Baby Blanket from Stitch N Bitch
Modifications: I made the side borders 12 stitches (instead of 10) and the inner part 102 stitches (instead of 106). To me it made the border look a little more even than with only 10 stitches.
Needes: Size 9
Size: 38" x 38"
It took me a couple of days to get about 6" into it. And then the rest only took me 2 days of intense knitting! The blanket took exactly 3 balls of Willow and 2 balls of Bone.Hat:
Pattern: My own!
I made the hat and booties out of an extra ball of Willow.One Hour Booties:
