Every time I look through the Purl Bee website I wish again that I could knit! I freakin’ love both of these blankets, but especially the multicoloured striped blanket. Doesn’t it look so warm and comfortable? Perfect for wrapping up in during those cold nights in front of the TV or when reading a book. Oh man. SOMEONE KNIT THIS FOR MEEEE!
This is the Eleventh Hour Blanket by The Purl Bee. It’s made with a U.S. 36 (20mm) needle, while holding a super bulky weight yarn double. I’ve finished this blanket in blue with hints of red, and now will be starting a grey-blue colored blanket.
Even though I still don’t know how to knit, I love sharing the projects for y'all who do! In fact, I think I need to hunt someone down to make this for me because I love it so much! I especially love the coloured yarn threaded throughout. I wish that it wasn’t Summer coming up… horrible, horrible Summer, but I can still wear this next Winter!
If you are wanting to give something other than sugar based treats this Easter, a sewn rabbit is the perfect substitute. There are tons of cute patterns out there, but these three are by far my favourites. How adorable are the little jackets on the Purl Rabbits?!
These bracelets are made braiding 5, 7 or 9 stands of Chinese Knotting Cord. The fabric is bias tape which you can buy or make. The Purl Bee’s Liberty fabric tape is so pretty but very expensive. It’s 7/8″ wide before folding for bias tape to give you an idea of the size.
