September 2011 Hospice Batch

I sent eight lap blankets with my friend for my part of the September hospice delivery.

Yes, I made yet another one of Lyn’s Round Ripple Blankets. It is just such a fun and easy pattern. I enjoyed the yarn as well: Loops & Threads Impeccable Ombres. The color is Neopolitan and silly me didn’t realize why working on this made me crave ice cream until I had nearly finished it.

This was an easy and fun pattern called Ripple Afghan Rug by Michelle Starkie. It is made with Lions Brand Homespun.

This is made with Harvest Lions Brand Homespun. I made it with a stitch pattern called Basket Stitch from┬áThe Reader’s Digest Complete Guide to Needlework.

Another ripple (can you see a theme here!) called Spring – Lacy Ripples from the Bernat Design Studio.

Another one of Lyn’s Round Ripples. I made this one with various scraps. I was rather proud of how well it turned out.

I fell in and out of favor with this pattern as I was making it. I don’t think I could have endured a full sized blanket. It makes a thick blanket that looks really nice, but not sure I’ll try another. The pattern is Love Affair by Cindy Adams published in The Needlecraft Shop 70221, 50 Sensational Crochet Afghans and Throws.

I wouldn’t have necessarily picked this color, but this was some donated cotton. Someone will probably love it. The pattern uses two strands and is super easy and quick. It is Double Cozy by Terry Kimbrough and published in Leisure Arts #108214, Afghans for All Seasons, Book 2.

This is from some more of the donated cotton. The pattern is Striped Blanket #161 by Patons.

With this batch I sent a couple of mens hats that my friend took with her to donate at The Big Stitch.

These are from Lions Brand Wool-Ease and the pattern is my own Mock Aran Mens Hat.

  1. I love the yarn color you selected (Neopolitan) by Loops and Thread. I am going to make a blanket for my niece’s baby with that color. I cannot find this type of yarn. I would like to know where I can purchase on line the following: Neopolitan by Impeccable (Loops and Thread) Lot#1209/311718. I believe this lot # has darker browns and pinks and creams. These colors will match perfectly with my niece’s color scheme for the baby’s room. Please help, help. Any type of yarn will do as long as it has these necessary colors. Thank you.

  2. I love the one made with Loops & Threads Impeccable Ombres, Neopolitan but can’t find the pattern anywhere. Where can I find it?
