60 Quick Baby Blankets
I am sure you have heard by now that 60 Quick Baby Blankets is available. If you are not familiar with the 60 Quick <insert project type here>, you are missing out. This is a wonderful series of books featuring Cascade Yarns, one of my perennial favorites. Of course, if I had blogged more recently than 3 months ago, I might be announcing something new! What you might not know is that I have 3 blanket designs included in the book, one of which is also included in the cover photo.
Blanket #1: All About Aran — a cabled blanket knit up in Cascade 128 Superwash. This one truly is a quick project. The bulky weight yarn makes the knitting fly off your needles.
Blanket #2: A New Leaf — blocks of lace knit from the center out in several colors of Cascade 220 Superwash. The blocks are all seamed together, but the effort is worth it! And each little block is a very addictive knit.
Blanket #3: Diamonds and Purls — garter stitch blocks composed of 4 triangles knit in Cascade 220 Superwash. The blocks again are all seamed together. However, I find garter stitch to be really easy to seam up.
