Neon Blue Blanket

I’ve had a head cold since Monday last week and have spent my days sleeping, reading, watching dvds and, when I was at my most energetic, doing a little weaving. I was most of the way through tying the Scary Tea Towels warp on the table loom, so I finished that Monday morning and wove about 8cm.

I also turned this:


Into this:


The squares were joined with a crochet hook and then I did a simple hooked edge around the outside. I had just two tiny balls of yarn left. I’m going to give this to my parents – they can fight it out between them who will use it of a night.

The pin loom bug has bitten deep, so I’ve started a another small blanket. This ones has two-colour squares. I’m using black paired with some multicoloured yarn I bought in New Zealand years ago.


I tried the multicoloured yarn with the hexagon loom, but the colour sequence didn’t look that good, so I’ll have to dig something else out of the stash for a hexagon project.

  1. Apologies if this is in the wrong place. I have been knitting up a pair of your ‘Free Knitting Pattern: Lazy Rib Fingerless Mitts’, as I truly adore the pattern…however, I have misplaced my original printout of the pattern.

    As I looked back in your posts for the original pattern (posted back in February), I noticed that rows 7-12 are actually there twice, instead of moving on to rows 13-18. I know I had the corrections written in on my initial copy, so they had to be somewhere…but I can’t find a corrected version anywhere on your site. 🙁

    Can you help me? I am already a mitt and a half in!

    Thank you!


    • Hi Jenn. I posted that pattern in Feb 2011, so it’s been a loooooong time and my memory isn’t that good. However, when I had a quick look it seems to me that the two sets of instructions for rows 7-12 are probably for left and right hands. The subtitles may have disappeared when I switched from Blogger to WordPress. If you’ve already knit one mitt, and you reverse the shaping for those rows, does it match up with the second set of instructions? Anyway, I hope that helps.
