Despite their resemblance to ETs, these are two knitted blankets I've just finished. Both are from free patterns I discovered on the Web. The log cabin afghan is done in blocks that are sewed together. The "Baby Shane" blanket is a clever design based on knitted triangles integrated through picking up stitches to form a square; there's only one seam in the end. To their designers I say, Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Really, these were amazing fun to knit, and are excellent mindless projects, well suited to traveling and television. Apart from the geometric beauty of each blanket, I savored the pleasure of using up stash yarn. What is more satisfying than that?
