I wove in the last end Thursday night. Isn’t it pretty? I had enough yarn left to start a quick little baby hat from the book 60 Quick Baby Knits
I am making the Ruffled Cloche.
I don’t have a specific baby in mind yet, just wanted to use some of the left over Kraemer Perfection from my afghan. Speaking of Perfection, we got a shipment in yesterday. The shelf looks so pretty with all it’s colors back! Also speaking of new stuff, the boxes are starting to pile up around here with all the goodness that is arriving. Be sure to come by and see what’s new soon.

I wanted to knit something that was interesting and new to me. Instead I ended up resurrecting a really old project! I am about 1/7th from finish and loving it! Wonder why I put it down? Do you have a long lost project in need of attention? Bring it for help Thurs night 7-9, just $10/person.
Maybe I will show you my peacock feathers shawl!

I had an email this morning from Sue. Sue asks
While at the Stiches fest this weekend, I purchased a pattern of your entrelac baby blanket. I have a question about the yarn yardage -- is the yarn required a regular worsted weight and I would need about 1700 yards?
Sue did not leave me her email address so this is the best I could come up with for answering her.
The yardage requirements for the Entrelac Baby Blanket call for 4 skeins of Solana. Solana has 320 yds/skein, so you will need 1280 yds total. Solana is a worsted weight yarn that gets 5 sts/inch on a US# 8 needle.
Hope that helps,

Thursdays mean the Knitting Fairy Yarn Studio is open for business. We have a drop in knitting class from 7-9pm, hope you can join us. What will Alissa be knitting? Likely it will be this:
Our Entrelac Baby Blanket. Now that the original has gone to it’s home and awaiting the arrival of Alicia next month it is time to make another from display.
Or maybe it will be a top down baby cardigan out of Perfection DK, or maybe an Iris Baby Dress out of Tatamy DK. Any are likely given the number of new arrivals expected among the friends of the Fairy! At least Baby knitting makes for good summer knitting.

I am still totally in love with entrelac and with the Entrelac Baby Blanket I designed and knitted with hand-dyed yarn by Brooks Farm Yarn but now I want to knit it in a yarn that we are carrying.
I don’t have a particular baby in mind but I have several candidates.
I decided to think girlish thoughts and start with pink. The original blanket was knit in one color, I want to use three. Butterfly, Bloom and Fluff. Of course, you could use any number of colors – knit a whole rainbow if you like.
The pattern has 25 rows of triangles and squares, so my 3 should work out just fine. 8 repeats of my three colors and I will end the blanket with another row of Butterfly triangles. Perhaps I shall edge it with Butterfly as well. I’ll keep you posted on its progress.
