Baby Blanket Ta-Dah!

Hello folks.

I got the baby blanket for our school's head finished and handed it over a few days after the birth.  The baby turned out to be a girl.   
I really enjoyed making this one, and it was a very simple pattern.  Make a foundation chain in multiples of 3 and the next (and every) row 1 dc 1 chain.  I like the woven effect it gives and is a more dense than granny squares would be.  The yarn is my go-to for blankets, Marriner Double Knit.  
It was well received but I think the boss might be using it more himself because sleepless nights are hitting with a vengeance.

As that project is out of the way I can concentrate on my Dark Pearl cardigan.  I bought this pattern and yarn (ahem) several years ago.  I'm making it in Drops Alpaca in a lovely dark purple.  It has a lace draped front and it is very me.
Thanks for the thoughts about Master Clicky's teeth. They are still under reconstruction, he has had the implants done and now is awaiting the crowns to be made.  The cost is eye watering, but luckily he is paying for it himself.  

That's me for now, Mr Clicky is back home next weekend for 10 days, so I'm really looking forward to that.  

Have a great week...............Clicky Needles.


  1. The balnket is a lovely present, it will be cherished. So sorry to hear about the teeth incident, that must have been extremely painful. Best wishes for a painless recovery wit the implants.

  2. Bravo on the blanket finish.. what a nice gift! Enjoy your husband's homecoming. How long does he have to be gone? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Lovely finish to the blanket! So good to hear your hubby gets to come back for 10 days! Hope MC is healing rapidly. xx
