TFA Tuesday - Baby Shane Blanket

I'm a little later than usual, but I couldn't let today go by without a TFA Tuesday post! This week's TFA inspiration knit is by Viki (on Ravelry). She knit my Baby Shane Blanket with one of my kits in the Jewel tones colourway! This is very exciting for me, because not only is it so fun for me to see things that others have knit in my yarn, but it is doubly exciting when said things were designed by me too! And her photography is beautiful, don't you think?



Her project page for this blanket can be found here.



When my mom knit this blanket from my kit, she used the leftovers in two ways, firstly, she enlarged the border, and secondly, she knit an adorable little roll-rimmed hat to go with it. Well, Viki did something similar, instead of enlarging the border, she actually made it a bit smaller by omitting a couple of the coloursways in it, and then she used that saved yarn to make a super cute pair of Baby Bell Bottoms. These must be just too cute on an actual baby. Can you imagine a snugly little one in these pants!? I love it!

  2. That is a very nice-looking blanket, and adorable pants, too. And I bet they're delightfully soft.

    But I simply must know: in the segment with the green and white stripes, what colour is that green? Is it available outside of kit form? It's a gorgeous colour.

  3. The colour you're admiring is available in skeins, it's called Stormy. Glad you like it! (both Viki's blanket and the colour that is!)

  4. Oh thank you. I've had my eye on Stormy already, actually, and now that I've seen it knit up, I want it even more. :)
