Finished Knit: The second copy cat

I recently got a haul of Socks That Rock yarn by Blue Moon. If I was pressed to pick one yarn to knit with the rest of my life it would probably be this, it’s so versatile! Wait, yes, I said sock yarn. But really this stuff comes in three weights, is superwash, and the colors so yummy, that you can use it for nearly anything. I was updating my embarrassingly large yarn stash on Ravelry and realized I never uploaded pictures of my finished copycat blanket.

I finished this in early August, and did nothing to these photos because, ah… that summer light!

It’s quite a project to knit a blanket on size six needles… I mean it takes a while. This one took me a year.

Here is where I talk about starting it.

I absolutely am in love with making these. I gifted this to a dear new baby halfway around the world I can’t snuggle, so this will do in place of real hugs.

I love playing with two very different skeins of yarns. If you click on my ravelry page you’ll see the balls of yarn being knit. I can’t recommend this yarn enough, here’s a link to it, try to control yourself, though I never do. I use medium weight most frequently.

I won a little contest of theirs for making descriptions for a few of their new holiday yarns (all gnome related colorways by the way!). So I had to get a few extra skeins. Scheming and dreaming… and of course I have another blanket halfway knit already. P.S. Throwback: my first copycat with Tuesday as a wee thing. We still use that blanket and love it.

Are you knitting? This weather certainly calls for it!
