Yes, I'm loving doing this. It gives me a break from the sweater I'm working on, which while it is a sweater, it's a pretty boring pattern of stockinette stitch. I want to get the sweater done eventually, but I also want to feel like I've "completed" something now and then, which the granny squares give me. I really like the look of the different size squares in the Babette blanket. The pattern I linked to (or rather the tutorial) used three DC in each corner, but with the aran weight yarn it made the fabric way too thick and stiff. I think I've figured out a floppy enough pattern now, though, that I'll be happy with once the pattern is finished.

I bought some yarn colors that I can only describe as having a "southwestern" feel. Reminds me of the painted desert. They aren't too pastel and they aren't too bright either. I'm hoping it looks good in the end!

I was thinking about starting a big throw blanket project and some hats for this winter. Does anyone have recommendations for soft vegan yarns that they are using and like?

I love working with Bernat Super Value and Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice.

YES, I did something with a Vanna's choice recently that was SO SO soft and promised to be washable and pill-free.

So cute, IJDI! I saw a yoda pattern on Ravelry, and I kind of want to make it for my cousin, but I don't know if his parents are that into Star Wars. Can't deny the cute factor, though.

okay, i am just here to confess that i have made the Wurm hat pattern three times in the last week, and I GIVE UP. i am not a super advanced knitter (i don't do brioche, OK?!) but I am a halfway decent knitter, and not new at calculating to adjust patterns. but i have tweaked, adjusted, fooled around with gauge and needles and etc, and it just doesn't get small enough for a normal-sized human head (I've decreased by 20% and am using sport weight. I calculated twice and it should make sense but each time it's still big enough for an elephant. unless I am going to use teeny beeny needles.... but with that wacko foldover and knit together business for the brim, i do not have the patience for that). THREE FROGS AND YER OUT! time to move on to the next project.
(feel a bit better now)

I did it! This will be a blanket for a baby who's expected to be born pretty much any day now. Baby's parents are huge nerds and their favorite colors are blue and red, so I think they will be pretty happy to receive this. I used Lions Brand Homespun yarn, so it's really soft and cozy. It was super fun to make!!

CQ, those are both fantastic! I've been watching classic Who eps on Netflix, and i love Four's scarf so much. I'm so tempted to throw aside all the Christmas presents I'm frantically working on and knit one for myself. How long did it end up being? What yarn did you use?

I used the store-brand yarn from Michael's, I think it's called Loops & Threads or something like that. I crocheted it using all single crochet and this pattern but I reduced the number of rows by 2/3 (so for a 12 row section I did 4 rows). I think I used the I-hook and I think it ended up being about 20 feet long...I'll check again later. It's for my cousin, who is short, so I didn't want it to be tooooooo too long. I knitted one a few years ago for boober (who is tall) and that one was much longer.

I just want to post my intention here. I'm flying to visit my family in a few weeks and I've been weaving on my loom but decided to knit during my vacation so I've picked out my project and yarn. I'm still a beginner knitter but I think I want to keep up my work in yarn while I'm away from my loom.

ooh, crochet ribbing! this hat looks really nice. Although, if I make this, it will be the 10th hat I've made this winter...

So... I had ordered a knitting kit that was on sale which included a pattern and the yarn for it... or so I thought. Then yesterday I realized my order never went through. So now I have to find a project that I can use with my current yarn stash as no way I'm heading into Michaels or anything. I'll be stalking out revalry.com to figure out something to keep myself entertained on my trip.
