I wound up knitting rainbows through pride month, which was fun. This one was an accident (I just like rainbows) but once I realized I did go out of my way to dig out a rainbow ball for my next project. :)
Blocking is magic. Hope you're not all sick of rainbows. ??? :) Pattern is Bounce by @tincanknits, yarn is a blanket kit from @knittedwit. The kit was a present to myself after I finally sold off most of my original work stock hiring bonus when the price was up last quarter. The rest will likely go into a new roof or house reno stuff so I wanted to appreciate it before I used the rest sensibly. :) #knitting #knittersofinstagram #rainbow #pride
Bounce Blanket kit from Knitted Wit (“Little Black Dress” colourway, Stroller size)
This was a splurge purchase to celebrate selling off a bunch of my initial stock grant at work. Despite having been in tech for many years, this marks the first time I’ve actually had stock vest and get sold!
My one complaint with this kit is that it wasn’t a perfect gradient — that stupid green skein on the end didn’t quite fit, so I left it at the end where it wouldn’t bug me too much. But I love the yarn, and with the exception of that irksome green, loved the colours. It also was quite generous in terms of amounts: I could easily have made this blanket wider than the stroller size only I legitimately wanted this to fit in a stroller and there’s not much advantage to having it wide enough to drag. So I’m debating a nice rainbow-y project to do with the leftovers. There might be enough for a stripey baby sweater to match!
This is not a hard pattern, but interesting enough with the rainbow colours that I didn’t get bored! I’ve now done a number of patterns from this team now and took advantage of one of their sales to pick up a few more to try.
I’m setting this to publish the day the baby it’s for is due to arrive, but I hear babies rarely adhere to schedule so no pictures with said baby for a while. :)
