I finished and blocked this at my parents' place a week ago, but today was a good day for my dad to bring it round to my place because I've just sucked it up and admitted that the jumper I was 3/4 of the way through was going to be way, way too big, and cast on to reknit it. Sigh.

So it was very nice to get a reminder of this FO. It's a square blanket based on the deservedly popular Adamas Shawl.

Hey mods - tags for blankets and lace would probably be useful. :)

The design is Gail's Red Aran from the Twisted Sisters Knit Sweaters book.

The yarn is completely handspun by us, mostly Emma, but a little bit of mine in there, too. The colour is the natural colour of the fleece, no dyes. Just a little wool wash to get the worst of the mud, sheep poo and lanolin out.

Also, I finished my Double Vision blanket, which I originally posted pics of in this post two years ago.

Just wanted to post a brag picture of my in-progress Double Vision.

As you can probably see, all I’ve retained is the colour blends. The technique is completely different. Each square is knitted from the outside in, and joined by picking up and knitting stitches of previously completed squares during the cast on. I admit that I’m using this technique because I HATE making up, and the idea of sewing up at the end of knitting made me shudder. This way, all I have to do is weave in the ends.

The yarn is Moda Vera Wisp, a synthetic polar fleece style yarn with a sparkle. I chose this yarn because I liked it, and because I simply couldn’t find the purple used in the top left corner in any other Australian yarn and still have a full spectrum. It seemed to be one or the other!

Each square is sixteen stitches per side, knitted on five 5mm DPNs or a circular needle (magic loop). This way, all of my squares are indeed squares, without the need for worrying about gauge or measuring. I’ll finish the outside edge with a crochet border in black when I’m done, just to neaten it and disguise any unevenness.

I finished my Tiramisu Baby Blanket.

Just needs the yarn ends tucked in, and a length of chocolate brown ribbon for the lacing. \O/

It's made of Panda Magnum Soft 8ply, which is a nice yarn to work with, even if it splits a little, but then, what plied yarn doesn't? I used a 5mm hook, and my cast-on was 125 chain stitches. It still worked out smaller than the pattern, though, by probably about 4" all round.

I like to have a 'small' project on the go - something to knit on the bus, and so on. Well, this is what I've been knitting! )

Last night, before I went to bed, I finished the last bits of weaving in and tidying up on the Hoodie Baby Blanket. Today, we took some pictures of how nice it looks before it gets sicked on by its intended recipient.

Pictures, ahoy! )

There's more info about this project at Ravelry HERE.
