These next few months will be a challenge as we all get through the Covid-19 crisis. Those of us who crochet and knit have an advantage. We can keep our hands busy with yarn and hooks and needles. We can make something and soothe our souls in that act of making.
We pulled together a One Bag Baby Blanket project at the beginning of the summer. Take a look at it again. It might be just the thing for now. There are ten color choices — some neutral, some bright, some softer. If you think you’d like a blanket that’s larger — maybe to use as a lap blanket — order two bags.
A blanket project takes time — you won’t finish in an evening or in a weekend (unless you are a super knitter!), and that’s good. We need the touch of soft yarn and almost mindless stitches to take our brains to another place.
While you are placing an order, treat yourself to a new AddiTurbo circular needle. We’d suggest a 32” or 40” for knitting blankets. With the longer cable you can spread out the stitches and really see the progress of the knitting.
Crocheters, HiKoo Simpliworsted comes in a multitude of colors. It would make wonderful granny squares for a baby blanket. Order a few skeins and get those hooks going on a new afghan or pillow project.
