WIP | We Join Our Program

... already in progress.

As promised, I’ve been plugging away at my super-simple, classic cabled baby blanket. Here’s the proof:


If that looks like a crazy jumble, you’re not far off. It’s a mid-stitch “action” shot of the three-needle bind off, the technique I'm using to join the blanket strips. (As you've deduced, I simply stopped, took a quick snapshot, then went back to my knitting.)

After a bit of fuss and several froggings, I think I've finally worked out an approach that creates an effect I like. The process is easy, but it’s been hectic here, so it’s taken me four days to reach this point. Three strips are joined. Two more to go.

That's it for me today. We now return to our regular programming.

You know the drill. It's Wednesday, so be sure to visit Tami’s Amis and Small Things.

    1. Thank you, Evelyn. I too love those little cables - such a simple stitch, but it produces such nice results.

  3. The colours that you're using are truly fabulous - perfect for a wee babe. Three needle cast off sounds fancy and tricky - do you need to grow an extra arm?

    1. I'm so glad you like the colors, Sally. The three-needle bind off doesn't require a third arm, but now that you mentioned it, it sure would be helpful to have one. (Although it's really rather easy once you get the hang of it.)

  5. This looks like it is coming together nicely and will become a lovely snuggly blanket for a little person. The three needle bind off for joining adds a little more interest to the blanket.
    Enjoy the closing moments.

    1. Great line, Mistea. Am trying to do just that, and you're right, the three-needle bind off adds just a touch of interest.
