I'm really loving this Super Easy Baby Blanket design that I keep on coming across lately (PS it's free on Ravelry). My favourite versions happen to be made with Sweet Georgia Tough Love sock yarn. These minimalist blankets are quietly revealing a hot knitting tip: If you're going to go simple with the design go gorgeous and hand-dyed with the yarns, the outcome will be brilliant.
These designs are SO do-able for the beginner knitter. I have always thought that one's first project should be with 'good' yarn, it makes the process a lot more enjoyable, and the finished product will be great no matter what.
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn. I am also a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008. In 2010 I moved away from BC and was (a bit) absent here until I returned in 2016. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events and other local artists and crafters.
