the finished blanket!!!

The month of June was a crazy month and my blog posting was “stunted” by lots of other things going on, including creative playtime. Some of that creative playtime has been spent finishing my niece’s baby blanket. It was an in process piece for a long time, and am proud to be able to say, that I will be mailing to her tomorrow. I knew I wanted to make her a blanket, the first ever blanket I’ve made and since it’s for her it’s that much more special.

It’s been quite and evolution…

the weekend I started the blanket and spent my art journaling afternoon working on it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

the work I'd put in when I visited in February to help my sister out with my nephews and niece.

 

 

 

 

the completed blanket... about the size of a throw

 

 

 

 

 

the 8 row by 8 stitch basketweave that makes up the pattern.

 

I knitted in the border in too, which was a 1 x 1 ribbing (all the knitters who read this will understand what that means).

I’m really excited that I completed this and even more excited that it’s something my niece will be able to have for a long time.

This was a longer term project, because it is rather big. It’s good to have one of these every few projects, but I do appreciate the “instant gratification” projects too – the ones that take less than 6 hours and you have a finished piece.┬áIn the next week I’m looking forward to more creative playtime and I’ll be working on a few of those projects, that will work up quickly plus some other things that I’ll be posting about as I finish them up.

Knitting continues to be a creative outlet and a source of great relaxation. I’m excited about what I’ll be able to work on over the next few weeks and seeing the little accomplishments, as I finish pieces for friends and family.

Have you made time for creative play recently?
