Another one finished

Another project finished. This blanket was done on the infinity loom from CindDCrafts. I did it with Red Heart Baby Cloths yarn in Bounce Multi. I took 8- 3.5 ounce skeins and measures 44 x 54 (approx)
It is the same on both sides and very light. I am sure a child will love it. This one is going to All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg FL.

Now I may be able to do more projects in patterns. This is a row counter that you put around your neck to easily keep track of where you are. No more losing your notes on paper. I got this little nugget from Herrschners.

Finished with my Blankie

This is a close up of the diagonal blanket that we at LovesManyCloths just love. This is a very easy pattern. Mine is done with 4 skeins of Caron Brites Lemonaide and bordered in Caron Brites Limelight. Caron Brites has some very nice colors and I plan to make some more with it. If you use 2 skeins in the increase part and 2 skeins in the decrease part it will make, with the border, just over a 38 inch square blankie. The link for the diagonal pattern: Have fun!

Can You See The Bear?

This is a pattern that can be used for cloths as well as blankets. I am presently working on a blanket but only have 2 blocks made. I plan to put them together with white in the sc method. I like the look of a border around each block. This is a very easy and cute pattern.

Infinity Loom Blanket

This is the first blanket done on the infinity loom. I really enjoy working with the looms from CinDWood Crafts. This will be a childs blanket 48 X 60. The fun part will be taking it off the loom. I only practiced once but I think I can do it. With all this work I am sure I can. Also shown is a close up. This is the twisted stockinette stitch.

What I have been working on

It has been quite awhile since I posted to my blog so I thought I'd better add news. Here are a few cloths and 2 blankets. The white one went to Winnie Palmer Hospital in Orlando and the beige one is going to All Childrens Hospital in St Petersburg, FL as soon as I finish at least one more. The cloths this time are going to GA. I am finding LovesManyCloths to be a very rewarding group and the gals are just super.

This is a close up of the blanket done with the Bernat big ball yarn. It is a 7 oz ball and makes a super soft blanket. Working with it is somewhat like working with Homespun. The pattern needs to be a simple one because the stitches are hard to find. I am on my 2nd one and may make more in crochet.
