I'm finally writing up the post about the project I worked on for Friday Night Sew In...although it should perhaps be FNKI as its a knitting project.
In November last year I had bought some Patons Cotton Blend yarn at a sale at Knitch. I had the vague idea I would make a crib/pram rug for the coming baby. Not knowing at that stage, whether it was a boy or a girl, I selected a range of colours,( there weren't many to choose from by the time I was there) including a soft pink, that yellow, some purples and those 3 blues.
Other than find a pattern on Ravelry, I didn't do anything with the yarn last year...or this year for that matter, until a few days ago when I started. And even though I'm 'not really sure' about those colours, I'm really enjoying this project and the feel of the knitted piece is lovely and soft.
As I mentioned, the pattern is from Ravelry.
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/zig-zag-baby-blanket-2 and is free! I love the colours in the pattern photo and I'm already planning to collect some colours that I do like, to make a 'Mark 2' version.
And in a first for me, I am using the pattern via iBooks on my iPad. (I actually have a lot of patterns stored in iBooks, so I should start using more of them! Lol)
Not that I need to refer to the pattern very much; it's a simple 2 row pattern.
