Mary's Blankets

Preemie baby blanket
Seed-stitch blocks
This preemie blanket posted on the needles last week is now complete. Last week's photo more closely captured the true color of the yarn called Blue Mist #115 (Lion Brand Wool-Ease).

Yes, both of these blankets were knit with the same yarn, but as mentioned above, it was difficult photograph. The yarn is a tweed - pink, purple, royal blue, and navy blue.

Mary sent six skeins of the Blue Mist yarn that was used to create these two blankets which will be sent to the Pine Ridge Reservation Project.

  3. You are such a super knitter, Nancy! I wonder what your total yardage of yarn used ever since you started crafting is...

  4. Very nice blankies. I bet the true colors come out beautifully. I know photographing is hard sometimes. Keep up all your good work.

  5. Two beautiful blankets and I love that blue! I am half-way through the second baby blanket and can't wait to finish. They are not my favorite baby knits. I would much rather be knitting sweaters and hats.

  6. I agree...your needles must be "smokin' ." LOL. Both blankets are beautiful and will be a great comfort to some precious little one. Well done!

  7. You've been busy, that's for sure! Isn't it strange how difficult some colors are to photograph? And I'll bet they also look a bit different on each person's computer.
