I sure overbought yarn for this project! What was supposed to be one baby blanket for my new Grand Niece, turned into 3 blankets! That's insane. The shower is this weekend and I'm giving them all 3 blankets. They can give once they don't want to someone else or back to me for donation.
I love a corner to corner blanket for a very fast project. I started this in the car on the way home from vacation and I finished it last night. This one is the smallest at 28" square and I think it would be a nice car blanket.
After 3 blankets I can say with confidence that I really like the Knitpicks Brava Worsted yarn. It comes in 50 colors and goes on sale once or twice a year. I used Marina, Cornflower, Coral and White. On all 3 projects I used a 5.5 (I) hook.
Also in the car I made a baby hat from the coral color. Baby hats are just so cute!
I only had a tiny bit of coral left and that will go in a scrap blanket. The blues and white are going back in stash because I'm over this palette for now.
The other thing I did yesterday was a test set up of Starlink internet. We are very rural so we don't have any kind of fiber internet options. We've been on another satellite provider for years. It's OK, but it's terrible for streaming TV. Eventually this will be mounted on the house but, for now, it's in the yard. It has some obstructions from this spot and it's still 3x as fast as our current internet. I'll also credit Starlink for creating a product with the easiest set-up ever. If I had plugged the power in properly it would have taken 30 minutes instead of 45 to set the whole thing up. The ties are on the cable so that it doesn't get accidentally mowed or cut before we can mount the device. I thought I was pretty clever with that.
So far, so good.
Today I will sew!
