New Doubleweave pattern
I have been planning this blanket ever since I found out I was pregnant! Even before I knew it was a boy, I planned and purchased these yarn colors, too! The colors I want to use are blues and greens. I am using soft polyester yarn from Hobby Lobby. I am also buying the yarn one at a time with 40% off coupons. I’m glad it’s taking me awhile to get all the yarn together because I have a huge to-do list and I want this to be one of the last weaving projects before the baby comes in April! I have almost collected enough yarns for it. I haven't been as diligent lately, so I will need to get on it again because I need to add some yellow, navy, gray, and possibly an orange to spice it up a bit. This is what I have so far:
I have been diligently practicing my doubleweave skills for quite awhile now, and I feel that I've gotten pretty good at it all. However, I am ready to branch out and make a somewhat new design based on the old one. This is the pattern spiced up a bit:
Instead of plain squares all the same size, I am going to be doing some of different sizes. This should be fun! My seam for the doubleweave blanket will go between two of the small columns.
