As I write this I’m watching the track of Hurricane Irma hoping me and all my relatives in Florida will be safe and sound come next week. There’s a lot to do, so I’ll be brief.
First of all, my thoughts and prayers are with the people in the United States impacted by Hurricane Harvey and now with those in the path of Irma.
Knitted Afghan for Baby
This easy knitted baby afghan is just as pretty as a complicated, detailed one. It’s from a 1924 Columbia Yarn Book of Infant’s Wear. The size is 24 x 27 inches.
It uses Columbia Germantown yarn (now discontinued, as usual for these vintage patterns) and size 5, 14 inch long knitting needles. The Columbia Germantown yarn was a 100% Wool 4-ply 2 ounce ball with 122 yards.
This Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn would be a good substitute. It’s 4-ply and is a 80% acrylic 20% wool blend. Lots of color choices and each skein holds 197 yards.
