It is always fun to see what people decide to make from the knitting patterns in our storybooks. This recent version of Freddie's Blanket really caught my attention!
When I teach the Freddie's Blanket knitting class, I enjoy sharing with my students about color and what a versatile pattern it is. It is such a great stitch for creating a custom color story to match home decor, especially, as in this case, for a new baby's nursery.
Evieandlily on Ravelry recently finished this adorable version of Freddie's Blanket, including the custom pom pom garland for an extra bit of pizzaz. When I saw the blanket next to the photos of the nursery (gray and yellow! zebra! Boston Terrier! polka dots and elephants!) I swooned a bit. Then I quickly emailed Julie to see if she would be willing to let me share her photos with you and she was very sweet to oblige! I just love seeing a wee one welcomed into the world with such care and affection. It's why we do what we do here at Slate Falls Press!
Happy Stitching, everyone!
