Knitted Quilt

I finished the knitted quilt blanket.

Take a look?

I could have worked on this project forever.  It was so soothing in difficult times.  It used leftover yarns–mostly.  (I confess I did buy a few skeins to get certain colors I ran out of and thought I needed.)  And it was so fun to combine different yarns for different effects.

Here’s a close-up of some of the blocks:

And a close-up of the binding, which is the i-cord method and, I think, works really well.

All the information you might want if you want to make this project is in earlier posts.  Go to the right side-bar, click on knitting, and all the knitting posts will come up.  Or, search for knitted blanket with the search button, further down on the right sidebar.

  1. This looks like a good project. We have a local author here, Debbie Macomber, who loves to knit and has opened a yarn shop. So glad the shop is here in town!

  2. Louisa, I thought it was beautiful while you we’re working on it, but finished, it is spectacular! I can’t believe how little time it seemed to take you to make an entire quilt blanket, but I’m certain that every stitch was soothing and beneficial to your well-being. Can’t wait to see the finished product in real life. Gail
