70s Style, Retro Baby Blanket

My summer knitting so far as consisted of two baby blankets. I forget how long these take me, but the last one I managed to knit in about three weeks, rather than the normal four to five weeks. I’ve got another three on order, but am currently focusing on knitting my mother a tunic/dress and myself a cardigan. However, here are some pictures of the first blanket (I’ll add the other one later):

I really enjoyed knitting this blanket, as the stripes were nice and thin, although it did feel like me skeins of wool would never end. I also had to figure out a way to hide the thread on the outside, so I twisted it in the same direction every time I had to change, it makes it look like quite a nice finish.

This blanket was made for a colleague at work who is having a baby in September and she chose the colours. I actually think they work really well! So, remember to find me on Etsy and Folksy.

  1. That’s lovely! Great colours together. Lucky baby! 😀

  2. Lovely ice cream colours, looks so cosy.

  3. Love the colours, very quirky!

  4. I love this one!! It’s going to be a tough decision to make when my neice/newphew arrives! Anymore blankets coming up? I think you should create a catalogue that I could pick and chose from LOL 🙂 I’m only being cheeky.

    Keep these trendy blankets coming… come November I’m putting my order in – should know the sex of the bump by then. I know they will love the blanket, it’s a priceless gift for new arrivals and one that will not only look stylish but practical as well

    I’ve got two more blankets in the ‘pipeline’, but they are not for any particular babies yet, just for a friend who really likes them. I’ve kind of got a catalogue on Etsy and Folksy, links above. Also, I will be adding a gallery to my blog, once I’ve figured out how best to do this.

    Looking forward to getting your order, maybe some funky colours?
