Granny Stripe Blanket

By now you all know that I'm a lover of all things created by Lucy, at Attic 24. Her blankets are especially lovely! So colorful and snuggly. I'm still working on this blanket for my little Sophia. With a little luck finding some free time it will be done SOON. This granny stripe blanket would be perfect for my sweet Isabel. I'm probably getting a little ahead of myself wanting to start another blanket before I've finished the first one. But it's going on my 2011 project wish list. So next New Years Eve my little girls can snuggle in their colorful granny blankets. Lucy has many more wonderful photos of her granny stripe blanket. If you are looking for more blanket inspiration check her tutorials for this Hexagon How-to and this Neat Ripple Pattern. Find the pattern here

Happy New Year!

Potholders

Bea at Knitting and Some More is sharing these pretty little potholders. While cooking and serving a crowd on Christmas this year I realized we are in desperate need of potholders! We were grabbing anything we could find to substitute for our lack of potholders. So these are going on my 2011 must have list. I made three of them last year as a gift for my Mom. They are very pretty sitting out on her table. I'm thinking I need a stack of them in bright bold solid colors. Mmm... Simple and beautiful! Find the pattern here.

The Nativity Story

"And she will bring fourth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins." Matt. 1:21
And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them at the inn. 
Luke 2:7

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. Luke 2:8

And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them: "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will  be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger." Luke 2:9-12

And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, an the Babe laying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concering this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. Luke 2:16-18

Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told to them. Luke 2:10

Now after Jesus was born in Bethleham of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him." Matt. 2:1-2

And behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. Matt. 2:9

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down  and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matt. 2:11


"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" 
Luke 2:14

Granny Stripe Headband/Earwarmer




I had to stop in the middle of working my Granny Stripe Boutique Bag the other day and when I set it down realized it would make a perfect headband/earwarmer. I used a smaller hook size so the shells would be closer together. I think it turned out perfectly! I love how these look all stacked together. This pattern is written for children 6-12. You can increase or decrease the size of this by adding or subtracting by 3's to the initial chain. For children 2-5 I would recommend only doing three rows of shells so it's not to bulky. To make it extra warm you could add a layer of fleece as a liner.


This is my beautiful daughter Isabel modeling. She was very patient with me while taking pictures on a cold day. Thanks Boo boo! Its getting REALLY cold here in Kansas! Hope some of you will enjoy this pattern too.

MATERIALS LIST:
Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Impeccable found at Michaels.)
Hook Size 4mm
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

STITCH COMBINATIONS:
Shell is "work 3 dc in same st or sp."
Beginning Shell is "work ch 3, 2 dc in same st or sp."

TIPS:
Join all rounds.
Do not turn after rounds.

Starting out: Ch 67.

Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Continue working sc in each ch st to end. Join w/ sl st in 1st sc. You will now be working in rounds. (66sc)
Rnd 1: Sc in same st as join and in each st to end. Join in top of first sc. (66 sc)
Rnd 2: Work Beginning Shell in same st as join. {Skip 2 stitches, then work Shell in the next st.} Repeat between {} around. Join in top of ch 3. (22 Shells)
Rnd 3: Sl St in each dc of shell into sp between first two shells. Work Beginning Shell. {Work Shell in space between next shell.} Repeat between {} to end. Join in top of ch 3. (22 Shells)
Rnd 4-5: Repeat round 3.
Rnd 6: Ch 1. Sc in next 2 st then sc in sp between shell. Repeat between {} around. Join in top of first sc. (66 sc)
Rnd 7: Ch 1. Sc in next st and in each st around. Join in top of first sc. (66 sc)
