Off the Needles - August 8, 2014

Two items have recently come off the needles. Well, one, really. It is another Sunny Blanket made for the coming grandbebé. The yarn is Comfy Sport from KnitPicks.com and is a cotton/acrylic combo. It is oh, so soft.

Do you remember My Sister's Sweater? It's done! done! done! It has been off the needles for a while and even blocked. But it languished for the want of buttons and button holes. I finally dug through the button basket and found three that were absolutely perfect! The pattern is Hand-to-Hand by Elizabeth Zimmerman and is all garter stitch except for the cable that goes from hand to hand.


  1. Oh my the sweater is beautiful! Love everything about it and the blanket looks very soft and sweet. I have started the blanket in blue, Thank you for the pattern link. Have a great weekend!

  2. A wonderful baby blanket! A gorgeously made sweater! You do beautiful work Paula!

  3. Oh my, how I love that sweater! The colors and style are wonderful. Nice finish

  4. Oh wow! Love both of these! Sweater turned out great!! Makes me want to start one! And I totally love the blanket!
