I used Stylecraft Special Chunky in Pomegranate and Spice, knit up 49 squares and mattress stitched them together. The knitting part was super quick, the sewing part... not so much. I knew there was a reason I knit everything on circular needles where possible. I love how the finished blanket looks though, so it was worth it and I'd love to make them more regularly. The patterns are on the Sunrise Living blog at the link above if anyone wants to join in with some baby themed crafts.
The baby cardigan was one I made about a year ago. It seems it was just waiting for the perfect recipient. I wanted to try out Rowan's Silver pattern and just used some odds of DK that I had lying around. It's a good project for stash-busting! I think the pattern recommended Aran yarn (at least, that's what I've always assumed 'worsted' to be) but some tweaking of the needle size and stitch count got me the right gauge eventually. I have another one in progress at the moment using Aran so hopefully it'll work out again...
Since it's Yarn Along day, I may as well add what I've been reading. I just finished Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole (predictable but lovely - I'm a sucker for a love story these days) and now I'm reading Attachments by Rainbow Rowell since it's been on my Goodreads To-Read list for ages. I'm not fussed on her writing so far but I'm crossing my fingers the story will get interesting soon.
What's everyone knitting right now?
