Blankets Galore!

I just finished a lovely little baby blanket for my neighbor’s new baby girl. I’ve never made anything for a little girl and it was so much fun to finally get to use pinks and purples. The blanket came together easily and with Anna Maria Horner’s delightfully beautiful fabric I had been saving for just the right project, the blanket turned out perfect.

I have also spent the weekend working on my Anniversary/Fall blanket. It’s been an interesting one to piece together because I am following Lotta Jansdotter’s directions from her book Handmade Living. She pretty much just cut a bunch of fabrics in different sizes and sewed them together in long strands. I was finally able to find some of her fabric here and it is wonderful to work with. I’m loving her funky, modern patterns with the earthy grays and mustard yellows I had chosen months ago. I wanted different textures as well to give it a cozier feel. I found cuddly wool from here and made sure to add my favorite soft linens as well. It will be interesting to see how it turns out… but here is a little sneak peek for now…

I’m heading to bed after a long day. Don’t forget to “fall back” tonight!
