Big Bad Baby Bedspread
Thursday, December 01, 2005

Quick update: I finished the BBBB that I started on Sunday. Isn't it amazing what you can do when you don't have a regular job? Good thing I finished it though, because I actually do have a job I'm starting tomorrow.

Oh, and I have to tell you how ridiculously large the blanket is. It's waaaay too big. If I ever make one of these again with a double strand of worsted I'm going to cast on fewer stitches. I'll post pics after I block it, by which time I'm certain it will be large enough to cover a queen size bed.

Oh well. I'm sure everyone will just be impressed that I knit something for someone else for a change. I'm so selfish.

Acrylic doesn't change a lot when you block so you should be ok. :)

I cast on 76 stitches for mine, double stranded Encore worsted on #13s, with an 8/30/30/8 pattern. It's about 28" wide. That's decent for a baby blanket. Don't know if that helps you at all...

How funny that you are already done! I'm about 6 inches in to mine after knitting for two hours last night. WAY faster than double-stranded sport on 10s. Did you know that a 13 is actually 3 full mm bigger than a 10? That is crazy!

I did 8/47/47/8. I should have done what you did. Make sure you post pics when you're done. I want to see it!
