Mitre-baby 2


I took this before I sewed up the blanket and then gave it away before I took another picture (yikes). It looks great from the front, not as great from the back, but I think the baby will like it.

Ball bands aplenty right now and then I'm knitting mitres with leftovers from the two baby blankets for Jennifer's trip.

Happy knitting all on the blog-o-versary.

This is so cute. I love it. I would like to know the specifics of how you did the shashing and corner stones. What a great idea. Keep up the great work!!!
 
knitnut, the sashing was blatantly stolen from a kay post a long time ago. after sewing the four mitres into squares, I picked up and knit one stitch for each bind off stitch and knit 8 garter ridges (my mitres were 48 stitches, not 72 since it is a crib blanket, so they were 10 inch squares with 2 inch or so borders). the corners are just picked up and knit the same way, with a twist in back to prevent holes for the first 8 stitches (or last depending on where you started) of each row. now that i've seen kay's new dishrag, i think next time I will try small mitres.
 
I love this quilt/blanket! The colors are wonderful and the quiltiness of it is just great. But it's knitted and that makes it perfect. I love your sense of color and the vibrancy of this. Can't wait to see what you do next!! --Sally
