Baby Snuggle Sack

I’m back! Sorry it’s been a while between posts, but lots of things have been happening. Anyway, I’m thinking about knitting and yarn right now, since I just finished a project. It’s a Baby Snuggle Sack:

I put the lip balm in there to give a size reference. By the way, the lip balm is Desert Essence Lip Rescue Moisturizing with Jojoba Oil, and it’s my favorite lip balm of all time. It’s just a little minty and very mild and moisturizing, and it doesn’t have sunblock in it. I know putting sunblock on your lips is a good idea, but if I do it all the time, my lips peel. So, I like to have an everyday lip balm with no sunblock. Then, on days when it’s sunny, I put on sunblock. Living in rainy SW Washington, this seems to work fine.

I used Bernat Pipsqueek Yarn in Funny Bunny Print and the Knit Baby Cocoon pattern from the Bernat website. Here’s a close-up of the fabric:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, back to yarn. Red Heart Yarn has a new line of yarns in school colors. Each skein has two alternating colors: red and silver, green and yellow, green and white, etc. I looked at them, and I thought that they were sort of a neat idea, but I was disappointed when I felt them. They feel like very rough, hard acrylic that would not be very fun to knit or to wear in a hat, scarf, or anything. But, that got me to thinking: one could knit in school colors using any yarn you want. Simply choose a yarn you like that comes in the appropriate colors. Then choose a pattern (I’m especially thinking of hats and scarves for watching games outside and giving as gifts), and knit away, doing color change stripes wherever you like. Lionbrand Yarn had a short but fun blog post on this subject. They take three popular yarns, and list them by common school colors. Here’s a link to it: http://blog.lionbrand.com/2011/08/15/school-spirit-yarn-shades/
Anyway, I think a Lewis and Clark College black and orange scarf might be in my future, but first I’d like to finish up some of my works in progress!
