Happy New Year

Happy Belated 2009! I hope you all had a great Holiday Season.

I just wrote a very large post of the projects I finished last year, and was informed of an error when I went to publish it. I hadn't saved it, so I lost the whole thing! I've got to remember to save my posts in the future!

So, instead of doing one huge post, I'll post the projects one at a time:)

Here's the first project I finished in December, the Babette Blanket.

I started this project in March of 2008, and then got sidetracked over the summer. I pulled it out again in November and was able to finish it before Christmas. It was a lot of fun, and best of all, I didn't buy any yarn for it! It was made completely out of leftover yarns and single balls I had laying around.

Pattern: Babette Blanket by Kathy Merrick
Yarn: Worsted/Aran Weight Leftovers: Cascade 220, Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted, Karabella Aurora 8, Malabrigo Worsted, Plymouth Galway, Noro Kureyon, Araucania Nature Wool and more.
Hook: 4.0 mm (G)
Mods: Used Worsted instead of Fingering Weight Yarn
Ravel It!
