The bear blanket

Yesterday’s post got postponed. The weather has been very cold, and we decided to pack the children in the car and spend the day in Helsinki, shopping, eating and watching a movie. Today is the weather warmer, and there has been sleighing and swimming on the program. I think the children will fall asleep easily today!

HPIM7393.JPG Today’s knitting project out in the flashlight is the bear blanket. The pattern for this blanket is the modern log cabin blanket from Mason Dixon knitting. The yarn is Sandnes Sisu, a yarn I got from my Secret Pal last year. I’m knitting it on 2 mm needles. The reason why this knit has come this far without being presented on the blog is that it has been my knit while helping the kids with their homework. It has not been together with the other knits, and I have never had time to blog on it after having worked on it, it has usually been time to start dinner or drive to football practises. Anyway, here it is. The last boxes are almost done, and then there is the border to finish after that. Pretty close to FO!

Swallowtail news: the nupps are finished, and I have moved along to the edge pattern. Blocking tomorrow? Let’s hope so!
