We’d like to thank you Mrs. Hoover

This is the latest blanket I’ve been working on for the Preemie Project. I found the pattern at www.knitty.com. The contributor shared a neat story about the pattern–that the first lady graciously shared the pattern with someone who’d seen it and wondered about it (all through letters, I believe).

The cool thing about this pattern is that it is double knit all at the same time, and no seam is required to put the two sides together. I didn’t have enough yarn in any one color to make it solid (or just 2 colors) as the pattern suggested, but the stripes are turning out okay too.

*note: double-knitting takes a lot longer than regular knitting…
