The Crochet & Knit-Along is focused on making baby blankets for Project Linus. Charity knitting is near and dear to my heart, so I'm VERY happy to be a part of Bernat's blanket drive. I've started making four of the recommended blankets, and I'm loving every stitch! Bernat's baby yarns are SO SOFT! :)
One of our KAL participants is Judy, and she is knitting two blankets for the project. Using Bernat Baby Jacquards Floral yarn in Rosebud, Judy is making the Jacquards Parquet blanket. She's knitting the Bernat Wave Stitch blanket also, and is excited that her daughter-in-law is making the same blanket, using Bernat Baby's Breath yarn in Baby Lilac and White. This is Judy's FIRST knit-along!
Lisa from Maryland has joined in as well, crocheting two blankets. Like Judy, this is her first time to join in a CAL. Lisa has been crocheting for about a year, and is learning to make the Big Granny Blanket with Bernat Softee Baby yarn in His Jeans Ombre, Pale Blue, and Mint. Before now, she had never made a granny square, but is happy to report "This is so much easier to do than I originally thought!" She is also crocheting the Wavy Ripple Blanket, using the pattern's suggested colors of Bernat Baby Coordinates yarn.
Kathleen in Texas has also joined in, bringing 47 years of knitting and 34 years crochet experience. I'm sure she will be a helpful part of our discussion forum, since she has the knowledge to help others with their questions. Even though she has MUCH experience with both crafts, this is her first time joining in a crochet & knit-along! Kathleen is making both the knitted and crocheted ripple blankets.
It's not too late for you to join us in making baby blankets! We are having a great time getting to know each other, and learning how to make our projects. I hope we get to know you soon!
