Twin Blankets

Check Out for thousands of custom glitters and layouts

My stepbrother and his wife are having twins! It's very exciting. A boy and a girl.

Here is the blanket that I made for my soon to be niece. It has a seed stitch border with the rest stockinette. I cast on 100 stitches on size 10 needles in a bulky weight yarn. It seemed to take forever to finish because I had to keep experimenting with the cast on number. 100 was a good number.

Here is the blanket in progress for my nephew. It happens to be the exact color of Cookie Monster. The Little Man discovered that fact. It is coming along much more quickly, probably because it's old hat now. I used the same yarn, different color, same needles, same cast on, etc. That's an alpaca stuffed animal that my mom gave me for Christmas by the way. Cute right? His tag says his name is Paddy O'Llama, so I guess he's Irish like me!


I was on my way to Target with the Little Man, when what do I see? Alpacas! In Florida? I have the picture to prove it. I hope the owners of the ranch don't think I'm a nut for pulling the car over and snapping a quick shot!
