Color blast

Lorajean (Knitted Wit) is expecting her second baby in June. The knit nite group wants to knit a blankie for Bubba-to-be. Our first group project was a blanket for Little e, two years ago. I learned some valuable lessons about group projects and gauge back then!

We were stymied when it came to color, though. We asked Lorajean for input, and she said that she’d love to dye the yarn.

I love these.


There’s one more color, but it’s already in Cathy’s capable hands. It’s like the limeade green in the picture, but darker, and semi-solid.

We’re planning to knit garter stripes like the blanket at the end of this Yarn Harlot post. It’s quick (bulky yarn, 14 sts), easy, and gauge will not be an issue. We’ll have two stripes of each of seven colors. Yarn gets distributed at knit nite tomorrow. Perfect! And you can see that I’ve already started…

  1. Oh, what a great idea. I loved when the Harlot did it. Can’t wait to see it!

  2. I think I’m half way done already! And I’m off to sit in the doctor’s office. Hello a few more inches

  3. How fun…with medley of colors. Total contrast from your last collaborative knit. But, I love the log cabin blanket. It’s very Einstein–great stimulation for a baby’s mind 😀

  4. That’s going to make a very cool baby blanket. I love those colors together.

  5. What a lucky mom and baby! The yarn is very cozy-looking.

  6. What a terrific gift!

  7. Can’t wait to see it. Love all the colors!
