Bookman Blanket

Hey Y'all!!!! It's a new year and with a new year comes new projects! Ok I have a case of starteritis - and I'm not trying to control it anymore. It's just what knitters do. I have started working on the Bookman Blanket for someone who's birthday is in May in my family. And I am crazy enough to have started two of them. One is doubled and the other is single yarn. Both are made from cotton ease one in white and the other in lime green. I don't have photos to show yet as they are both coming along quite nicely. The pattern is found in the Interweave Holiday Knits magazine as well as here on Ravelry.

This is the copy in the magazine. Mine is not quite there yet - I'm on row three...

I didnt use the yarn from the pattern because well....I have too much yarn already and decided to shop from my stash. I found that I have enough to do both blankets and can't wait to see how they knit up. I'm just hard headed enough to do the larger size pattern. These squares are huge!! I had no idea that 40 row 20 stitch squares could be so big!!!! I will definitely take some photos later to show you what I mean.

The pattern is not hard at all. If you can knit, purl & pick up stitches you too can enjoy the joys of entrelac. I recommend using stitch markers when knitting the letter portion of your version of this. Photos to come later.

What are y'all working on?
