Back in 1991/1992, when I was 13, I knitted a baby blanket for my mum as she was pregnant with my little brother. This was the only time I knitted anything, but recently I’ve decided to get back into it. Back then, I used my mum and grandma’s leftover wool to make the blanket out of patchwork squares, so I never needed to know anything about 2 Ply, DK or weights of wool. I felt all sea on a knitting supply website because I had no idea what I wanted! I found the below video on YouTube and I found it really useful.
I also love the video below as I had completely forgotten how to knit! I love her bloopers at the end too 😀
I can’t wait to get started making a new baby blanket – haha not for me, there will be no pregnancy announcements from me! I really want to donate my blankets to charity, there are quite a few to choose from on this page:
