Its a Breeze

Posted by Nanc

Well, the yarn is; Sirdar Breeze, that is. And my contribution to it was pretty much a breeze: simply knit a few (four) squares. But I know that Good Girl Purl had a bit more in store for her part.

What am I blathering on about? Well, just a beautiful and wonderful baby blanket gifted to GGP’s Diva Sister this past weekend!

A group of us were asked to knit some 6″ squares for the blanket and GGP gave us the yarn – Sirdar Breeze in Cream. We had plenty of time, although some of us procrastinated until the last possible moment.

Four squares… not too bad. Funny thing? Of the 7 or 8 girls contributing squares and the 30 squares used, not a one of them are duplicates. No discussions were made about what squares to make; every just kind of did their thing. How cool is that?

Anyhoo, the shower was this weekend and Purse Ho has already blogged about it. So I guess that I can jump on that band wagon and show you my squares. (In these pix they have not been washed or blocked yet. See how much work GGP must’ve put into it?)

BTW, I didn’t get a picture of the fabric backing, but I hope that someone did (at least GGP). It was really cute with lil’ kid cowboys wearing a red cowboy hat and such.

    Another inspiring project from you Texas knitters, though making a quilt of my own suddenly seems like far more work than I anticipated. A very lucky baby!
    BTW–Hasn’t anyone told GGP’s Diva Sister that she isn’t supposed to look so gorgeous while preggers? Golly, ruining it for the rest of us…
