Because what else could I possibly make with two large balls of perfectly coordinated cotton yarn?
I love the color changes in the variegated yarn. The variegated yarn is called In Motion - an interesting name for yarn - and the pink is Mod Pink. Both are Bernat Handicrafter Cotton.
The pattern is from Lion Brand - a simple v-stitch pattern (click here for the pattern). I have made several blankets using this pattern including Claire's Pink and White Blanket.
I actually started this blanket while we were driving to Hilton Head Island in August. It was the perfect travel project...back and forth, no counting, nothing to keep track of.....perfect for viewing the scenery along the drive while still keeping my hands crafting.
When the blanket was all finished, I laid it across the foot of Bridget’s bed. There is something so cozy about a blanket on the end of a bed, it says home and comfort to me.
