Snowflake - revisited

Snowflake
Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket
started December 2013

The group coordinator asked for two substitute knitters on Snowflake, so Cheryl and I volunteered. I knit the second section on this blanket in December and added the second to the last section in January.

My second section was knit with Caron Simply Soft (white), using a seed stitch and stockinette block pattern. I used a new skein of yarn and discovered that the yarn coming from the center of the skein had grease and guck on the strands. Cheryl gave me the blanket when she finished her section, so I could use some laundry pre-soak on those sections. I washed the blanket, and thankfully, all the stains came out.

Cheryl knit the last section, shown at the bottom of this photo, and did the bind off. She will start a new blanket on the empty needles.

  2. Makes you wonder how the gunk gets wound into the middle and avoids notice. Yuck! But the blanket turned out very pretty.
