Baby Blanket Craze!!

sleepyboycrna's picture

Hello everyone!! It is definitely baby season in Atlanta. I have several baby blankets in the works for work colleagues. Three in October, one in November and December and one next March!! So, I thought I would post my progress. Not sure when I'm going to find time to knit a hat for my bald head, but fortunately Atlanta doesn't get that cold. ;) Best wishes..until we knit again...

What a great array of blankets. I usually use one of three patterns I have had success with. The last time I had to knit so many afghans in a year (5 - 7), I threatened to start handing out condoms with them. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Nice stuff. Are they double sided? Particularly the round one.

the only double sided one would be the pink/green and brown blanket. It's just a combination of knit and purl so it would be reversible. I gues the round one could be reversed. It would be all purl bumps on the backl side though, not as attractive. Thanks for the comment

I'm impressed by the industry and the variety presented! I keep *meaning* to do baby blankets for various spawn and then never manage it....

I have toyed with the idea of doing one in the ciruclar/spiral pattern alternating knit and purled sections (or plain knit and lace - or all three) but haven't gotton around to it.

Mario, the evil lace enabler, no satisfied with enabling adults, now he is going to start with the infants!

Is this your plan for world domination?

Very Nice Work!!!
I love the pinwheel blanket. I have also done one of theose myself, easy to do but some what complicated without stich markers(thought I could keep count without markers, and then frogged it out, laughs at himself!). Job well done!

Those are great. Love the cables and the one looking like brick-work. They're all great - I too seem to always be knitting for babies. Happy knitting!!

The blankets are cute! I especially like the one done in the round. Do you ever go to Knitch? I live in Athens, and I might be heading over there sometime in the next few weeks.

Your blankets are GREAT!! I especially like the cabled, tan & white blanket. My best friends live in Rome, GA and are expecting their second baby on Nov. 4th. I'm making a BSJ and an umbilical cord hat for the little bugger.

They all look great! I like the variety of the patterns, but like the look of the cabled and the spiral ones the best.
