Wenlan Chia’s Lacy Chunky Throw

Earlier this summer, I used my pending baby as an excuse to finally knit Wenlan Chia’s Lacy Chunky Throw.

blanket 007I was pleased that the 5 (free) skeins that I won in a drawing contest from Heather Ross (among other goodies) was enough to make a good-sized lap blanket. This would be great to throw on a bed later for added warmth. However, I think there are too many holes and the fiber is too fuzzy for a baby. I could barely get by without getting fiber in my own mouth, so figure it would be worse for a little guy!

blanket 011Besides all my complaints above though, it feels and looks like buttah, I tell you.

  1. Hmmm… baseball bat-size needles makes me think it knit up somewhat quickly? That’s my cup of tea. Or coffee. ‘Cause I’m no tea drinker. It sounds like it was a bit of a pain, but the finished result is gorgeous. Just keep your mouth closed when cuddling up in it.
