  1. Another one for my queue. At this time of year chunky blankets feel like a very good idea. I have lots of baby dk that I could use doubled for this blanket.

  2. I have so many patterns now that I just can’t keep up with all the comments and questions on this page, ravelry, pinterest and other sites. However, I DO want to hear from you, help you and see your lovely makes! I have a very lively facebook group page – please join me and over 6,700 other members. I check in every day and if I am not available, someone else usually is. The group is ~

    1. How much yarn is needed for each of the sizes? I really want to make this!

    2. I've been asking this for weeks on the Facebook page but still not had a reply

  3. I'd also like to know the answer to 'unknown' asked on 1/5/2017....not everyone knows how to figure this out ....thank you

  4. I love all your patterns, and I love knitting for babies. The only problem I have is it's hard to find reasonably priced dk yarn in the US - not much selection.
