Quadrature for Smaug
The mysterious blue ball of yarn in yesterday's photo? It's part of this:
The pattern is Quadrature for Korrigan and I knit it in Cascade 220 Superwash in Sapphire Heather. I used size 7's (4.5mm) and used 4 skeins (3 + a few yards of the fourth to complete the bind off) of yarn. It's just under 36 inches square so it should work well for a car seat blanket, a stroller blanket or any of the thousands of other times you need a blanket on a baby that isn't huge. This is for a friend who is actually a beginning knitter - my Mom and I taught her to knit. Yes, the baby is a boy. I didn't want to blog it in progress because even though she doesn't read the blog regularly, I didn't want to chance it. Her baby shower is tomorrow though so I thought I'd show you today. Great pattern and I'm really happy with how it knitted up. I think it is a nice blanket for a boy.
