knit your library, vol. 5

Are you tired of crocheted blanket edgings yet? Too bad, because I'm not! Hehehe. I just finished another one, making it my fifth blanket I've finished in 2016 and a whopping 7.5 yards of fleece out of my stash. I'm planning on working my way through my entire fleece stash this year, selling blankets at my knitting guild's booth at a local craft fair in April and gifting the rest. This one though, with the extra complicated edging and yarn named snapdragon (appropriate right?) is for me, oh me!

Pattern: double-scallop edging, from p. 148 of The Needlecraft Book (link to Rav project page)
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Brights in the snapdragon colorway, used 2.28 skeins held double
Hook: size H 5.00 mm

And since I've felt a craving for simple sock knitting lately, I've cast on for the child's tube sock recipe. This is a free pattern I've had in my library for awhile now, since I was intrigued by the idea of socks that would last longer since there was no defined heel. (they'd get shorter and shorter and become anklets, right?) We'll see how the kiddos like the fit and feel with the first pair before I go crazy making tons of these!


  1. I think that's a great idea to use up fleece! Yay for stash busting on many levels.

  2. Gorgeous edging and your brave choice of colour works perfectly.

  3. The tube sock idea is interesting, I'm interested to know how well they fit without having the heel.

    Love the edging and the pattern on the fleece. Great idea
