Blue Blanket Beginnings

I’m finally getting back to my lotus pond blanket. The last time I worked on this was when Josh and I were housesitting in Boston. That feels so long ago! 2020 has been a long year.

The blanket part will be blue to represent water. I thought about buying new yarn but a persistent theme of this year was working with what you have at home. So I went through my stash and rounded up all my blue yarn.

Turns out I had quite a selection. I like the idea of the water flowing into different colors. Several yarns are leftovers from previous projects so this blanket will be a warm reminder of past knitting. I still need to figure out the lotus leaves and get some green yarn for them. But I’m putting that off for now.

For the blanket I’m using Frankie Brown’s Ten Stitch Blanket (Ravelry link). I made this pattern years ago and really love it. It’s super easy and makes for great TV knitting. Ursula is putting her kitty goodness in early on. She’s such a dedicated assistant.
