FO: Bias chenille baby afghan

It’s done!

IMG_9060

We’ve had nothing but brutal, sticky weather. And knitting with thick, heavy, sticky chenille is not ideal, but I powered through.

And I’m so glad I did.

As mentioned before, the yarn is Bernat Blanket, which was generously provided by Yarn Canada. While I didn’t enjoy knitting with it, it does create a wonderfully squishy, cuddly blanket. And the colours are pretty cool – nice and modern.

It worked out well with my Bias Garter Afghan pattern. I used about a ball and a half and got a baby blanket about 30″ square.

After the fair, this one will be put away for the next silent auction at Bee Meadow Farm. Since the yarn was donated,  I think it’s only right that I donate the yarn to a great cause.

    This weather is sucking the life right out of me. How you managed a blanket I’ll never know. It’s adorable and one day-hopefully, some baby will be lucky to have it keep warm. Right now, I’m not so sure winter is coming this year.

    I can only echo your comment on the weather. Hot and humid here. That blanket is adorable and looks snuggly in the photo. It is so wonderful that you donate some of your projects to the rescue group.
