Plymouth yarn company's Seed Stitch Squares blanket. It calls for four balls of yarn doubled. I had just three, but it turned out fine. I used some Cascade Pacific acrylic yarn, doubled and the weight turned out well. I like the size too.

Building Blocks Baby Blanket by Plymouth Yarns. I did not use the yarn called for in the pattern, so my blanket is significantly smaller than it could be. Car seat or stroller sized. I used a soft aran acrylic by Cascade Yarns- one of my favorite yarn companies! If I ever make this blanket again, which I probably won't, I would double the yarn and use a bulkier weight. I have the Encore 8 Hour Baby Blanket booklet. I like the book, the patterns are easy and I'm likely to knit most of them.

This wonderful wall quilt was inspired by one of my favorite designers. She released a new redwork hand embroidery block each month last year. I had fun trying to keep up with the handwork. The quilting part has reminded me that I enjoy small quilting projects and I'm a terrible quilter. I used 2 strands of floss throughout. Working with 2 strands gives more control with the tiny details, but also shows flaws better.
