This week UK Swap inspiration topic is warming your knees.
Blankets are something I know quite a bit about, but only crochet ones !
Here are my blankets...
Most have been gifted as baby blankets, the last one is the current WIP for a baby boy due in a couple of days.
Only the Noro Hexagon blanket is for me (first picture). This does a wonderful job of keeping my knees warm! However it is nowhere near finished. I have about another 5 or 6 balls to use up and hundreds of ends to sew in. It doesn't stop me snuggling under it on the sofa however.
If you are thinking about making a crochet blanket, then I recommend getting your hands on 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton - this is the book that gave me the blanket buzz!
I haven't knit any blankets yet, I do love the Alphabet Blanket by Debbie Bliss, but this is definitely a baby gift. If I was to knit something I can see the Hemlock Ring featuring high on the list. This would have to be knit in something a little thicker than the 4ply Cashsoft or DB Baby Cashmerino that most of the other blankets have been crocheted in!
