Works in Progress: 14 January 2015

works in progressJust popping in to say I am almost done with the rainbow blanket. Atticus is thrilled. So far it is measuring slightly over 3 feet x 3 feet and my goal is for it to be closer to 4×4. One last skein of rainbow yarn and then a half-skein of black.

I originally thought that this blanket would one Atticus would grow up with, take to college, and use in his first apartment. The plan was for the blanket to have alternating rounds with more muted shades of red, green, yellow, orange, blue, and gray. However, when a four old requests a blanket that looks like rainbows he means RAINBOWS.

This will be a smaller blanket for TV time and snuggling with lovies and books. I’ll make that more dignified blanket when young sir hits double digits.


GOAL: Finish blanket by Sunday night.



  1. Beautiful! I’m guessing that he will still grow up with this one, take it to college and his first apartment. My 14 yo still sleeps with his “baby blankets” (yes, that’s blankets plural), and curls up with them to watch movies. 🙂

  2. Gorgeous — and I have to admit, I got a little teary at your blanket daydream — so lovely. I’m knitting tons of wool soakers/longies for my baby, and I suspect he’s not taking those to college. I love the idea of making a blanket he can take — will have to start now as I’m a very pokey knitter (hopefully I speed up once he’s no longer a newborn!).
