If they are only babes‐in‐arms then they might not appreciate much as they are pushed along the neighbourhood streets from one glowing house to the next. But you know that next year they will be taking their first steps up to each front door, and the year after they will be running from one place to the next. By that time you will have your hands full trying to make sure they don't either get lost or eat too many sweets before they get home again!
And before you think: "It can't be that time already" – yes it really is. Halloween is only 1 month away! Where is the time going this year...
However, before you start planning their costumes, why not try out this week's “Knitting Ahead” idea – a fall coloured blanket for their stroller or toddler bed. Those October evenings can be chilly, so a Pumpkin‐coloured blanket will keep them toasty warm.
The picture at the top of this page shows a new pattern, the Winsford Stroller Blanket. This is a fairly quick project so there's easily enough time to make this before the big day. In addition to a stroller size, there's also a matching blanket for a toddler bed so everyone can have a cozy evening.
If you would like to make this pattern, then you'll need about 350gm of the orange colour and 250gm of the yellow. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes worsted weight yarn in Cols #24655 "Orange" and #24650 "Caution" (amber/yellow), but any similar yarn would work well. I'll post more details about this new pattern in my next blogpost, so please click the link at the bottom of this page to read that.
Thanks again for all the lovely messages about this "Knitting Ahead" series. I’m glad everyone is enjoying this. If you’d like to read the first of the series, then please click here, then follow the links at the bottom of each page to get back to this point.
Until next time – Happy Knitting!
