While work progresses slowly on the complicated socks, I've cast on some mindless knitting on another set of needles. So I've started Janice's Easiest Ever Lacy Blanket. Now that I'm several repeats into the blanket, I'll admit it - it really is the easiest ever lacy blanket. Which makes it embarrassing to admit that I messed up my first try, ripped out after 10 rows and started again. With this pattern I wanted something quite traditional, vintage even. With the thought that a new mother may see this blanket and think, I had a blanket just like this when I was small!
The yarn is Dream in Color Classy in a colourway called GoGo Grassy. Although lovely to knit, this colourway is disappointingly bland. Not nearly as exciting as the purple colourway from last week. Nonetheless, it's still pretty and it's working up into a charming little blanket.
