Time for a blanket KAL!

July 11, 2018

Tanis is churning out Polygon blocks!

We have always found the amazing colours of Tanis Fiber Arts and the blankets of Tin Can Knits to be a match made in heaven. Tanis is hosting a great blanket KAL and you can find all of the details  here. When I went to write this post I realized just how many of our blankets we have knit in TFA and…..well it’s a lot!

My most recent blanket knit in Tanis Fiber Arts DK is the Polygon. It was a chance to use my *ahem* curated stash, collected over my long-time fandom (I think I got my first skein of Tanis back in 2010!). Instead of choosing a tight palette of a few colours I went with a wild rainbow of almost all the colours! No regrets, I adore this blanket in all of it’s rainbow glory.

Next up is the Vivid blanket. I have knit this blanket in TFA not once, not twice, but 3 times I loved it so much! I knit one with white borders, one for Bodhi when she was born, and one for Ellis when he was born. Bodhi and Ellis’ blankets are both rainbows, but slightly different rainbows. I like how swapping out a few colours gives them a totally different feel.

I have also knit up the Bounce blanket in TFA. This one is slightly less rainbow-ized…but not much! This one was for my wee nephew Harrison.

Bounce blanket in all it’s stripes and lace!

I have even knit up a POP blanket (that I had totally forgotten about!) in TFA, with my favourite combination, white encircling the bright colours.

In addition to all the blankets I’ve knit, Tanis has knit up some lovely TCK blankets as well, her Fly Away blankets are really an inspiration.

And if you need even MORE inspiration, check out Tanis’ TCK blanket projects here, here, and here, Undone57’s Fly Away here, and you can see ALL of the TCK/TFA blankets in one place here.

So, will you be blanket-ing along this summer?!

    Lovely blankets, and whilst I love the idea of knitting with you I am already over committed so I must step away. Have fun.

    That’s so funny, because I am halfway through the second square of Dogwood, in Knit Picks City Tweed, Snowshoe for a dear friend’s new grandbaby due early August in France!
    I have drooled over this pattern since I first saw it, and thinking it was hard I saved it for someone who would appreciate it. I’m actually amazed at how quickly it is knitting up, and how easy a pattern to follow!!
