Wool Leaves

It seems like every time I go into a yarn store, I walk out with at least one skein of pink yarn. I just can’t help myself, I have so many things I want to make for my little girl on the way. On a recent trip to the yarn shop I came across this lovely magenta Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and it just so happened to be on sale – of course I had to scoop it up. I knew it would turn into a blanket when I bought it, but didn’t know which pattern I’d use at the time.  As you might have noticed, I’m on a major Brooklyn Tweed spree lately (see girasole and topiary just to name a few) so I decided on the Wool Leaves pattern.

This was a very quick knit because I held the yarn double and it is knit on size 13 needles.  I was able to make the blanket – start to finish – in about 24 hours total.  I loved this pattern. It’s very easy, the chart was easy to memorize and it moves quickly on such large needles and yarn. I will most definitely make this blankie again!  192A5154

Isn’t the pillow the perfect match too?  I needed a few throw pillows for the bed we have set up in the nursery and as soon as I saw this little guy I just had to have him!
