July and August Knitting Projects

July was my Grandma's 82nd birthday. So I knit some squares and embroidered Grandma is Love on the squares. One letter per square. I then put them on a pillow case.
July was also my little cousins birthday. He turned two. So I made him some knitted blocks. He loves throwing them. Luckily they are soft.

August was my Uncles birthday and he is a Denver Bronco's Fan. So I made him a matching hat and scarf set. (Foam head provided by Aunt Kristy)

August was also my cousins birthday. He likes to go Hunting. So I made him a matching hat and scarf set, so that he can blend in and stand out all at the same time. (Foam head provided by Aunt Kristy)

April Birthday

My Grandma Kitty's birthday was in April and I decided that I was going to make her a blanket. Well it took longer to make than I had expected. I finally finished it in June. And I am now finally posting about it. You'll notice in the first two pictures that the bottom yarn is lighter than the rest of the blanket. Well I didn't realize that until I was almost done. I checked the dye lots on all the yarn I got and they were the same. The bottom just had to be different and stand out. My Grandma loves it any way. I used the Arrowhead lace throw pattern from Red Heart, the yarn I used was Red Heart Super Tweed Landshark, I used four skeins. Even though it was a lot of work I would totally make this blanket again, because the finished product is beautiful!
