Knitting Spotlight: Blankets

The top 5 words that come to my mind when someone mentions the word "blanket" are:


  Ukrainian Tiles by Margery Winter, knit with Red Heart Soft Wine and Gold.

A Christmas gift for my Mama, my sisters call it the Gryffindor blanket.  


 Melody Jo in Knit Picks Comfy Sport

A gift for my friend Lesley's little angel, Melody.


Lost in you pattern by Lucky Hanks on Etsy

Must knit this.  Going to go get yarn for this.


Quickie Blanket from Big Box Detox

The color changes in this blanket really make it stand out, it is so very pretty!

Double Seed Stitch Blanket from The Purl Bee

Ahh, The Purl Bee, how I love your patterns.  Double moss stitching and neutral coloring all wrapped up in a blanket, what a beautiful combination.

I would add as a 6th blanket description, the word companion.  Curling up under a blanket, with a cup of tea and a good book/my knitting is a fabulous use of my time.  Currently, I am making Martin Storey's Shetland Knee Rug from Scottish Knits.  I meant it to be a birthday gift in June, obviously that didn't happen, it will be done for Christmas (hopefully).
