Hi everyone,

Just tooting my own horn a bit. Lion Brand Yarn Studio published my recent Baby Blanket project on their blog today.

How cool is that! The blanket looks great - i like how the waffle check softens the colors, and i think your border nicely ties together the blues.

It's beautiful, Michael, and your thorough explanation of the pattern is very helpful. I'll be a lot of people copy that...

That is great, Michael! It is definitely a thrill to see your pattern in print - regardless of medium. I am glad they posted it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

You should toot your own horn as the blanket is a beautiful piece of work. Like Bill, I suspect of lot oof people will be copying the pattern. Well done.

I love the blanket!! It shows up differently depending how close or far away you are. I love that and the blend of colors is spot on: not too "girly", not to "boyish", and certainly, not too "baby". This blanket will go a long way! Congratulations on the post. It is well-deserved. Yeah for Michael!!! ;)e-

You realize these are the same yarns I used for my helical knitting cap, right? But without the silver/gray yarn, those colors are really bright.

QueerJoe's picture the Lion Brand deserve the recognition and the praise.

You can't imagine how great it was to finally meet you in person so I can find out you're as great a guy as you come across here at MWK!

Now i know which blanket you are talking about. Sorry that I didn't remember it when you mentioned it to me at the retreat.

Congratulations, Michael! Can't help but wonder what it feels like to have a pattern that you created published by a yarn company. Must feel pretty excellent. It feels pretty excellent to me just belonging to the same group you do. Reflected glory and all that. My hat is completely off to you. Looking forward to seeing your next project.

Thanks Tom,

It was a nice surprise when I found out they were going to publish it. But, in addition to that recognition, the praise from everyone here is also great.

You are such a Knitting Stud! It's wonderful!

Hi Michael, just looked at your picture again, what pattern stitch is that?

mrossnyc's picture

It's from "...Color Knitting..." by Margaret Radcliffe, P.46, Waffle Check.
I used the gray yarn for all the slipped sts like the diagram shows and changed colors as I felt.
