Sunsets

Sunset near Ocean Lake

Forest fires in Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and California this summer resulted in extremely smoky skies and some beautiful sunsets. These sunsets prompted Cheryl to name a new Western Region Oddball Knitters Baby Blanket "Sunsets."

Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket

Cheryl used a brilliant yellow and orange for the beginning section and passed the needles on to me. I used the top photo as inspiration and added the maroon and mauve stripes.

  4. Love your sky photos! This is a very pretty blanket and a neat stitch pattern you chose. What is it? How'd you make the stripes wavy? Great job!

  7. Andrea's picture is spectacular, and I love, love, love that it became an inspiration for Cheryl to name and start a "sunset" baby blanket. I really like what the two have you have knit so far! Let's hope the other knitters follow the idea! Great work!
