NEW Aimee Alexander Design: Sawing Logs
It is okay if you look at this picture and sigh with happiness. I do every time I see it. This sweetly sleeping baby is under Aimee’s newest pattern release, Sawing Logs.
Using worsted weight yarn and a fun combination of twisted stitches and seed stitch, this blanket is a fun challenge for a beginning knitter. It is the perfect mix of easily memorized motif and simple knitting for the more experienced knitter.
Aimee knit the original blanket in Berroco Vintage. Vintage really is our go-to yarn for baby and kids. It comes in such a large color range (currently we have 44 in stock) and knits up relatively quickly in a gauge of 4 to 5 stitches per inch. The other recommended yarns for Sawing Logs are Malabrigo Rios and Berroco Comfort. While Vintage is a blend of acrylic and washable wool, Rios is 100% washable wool and Comfort is an acrylic and nylon blend for those who prefer no wool.
Sawing Logs is designed to be knit to three sizes, lovie measuring 16″ x 16″, stroller measuring 25″ x 33″, and crib measuring 33″ x 41″. All of Aimee’s blankets are designed for these three sizes. The lovie is perfect for just that, loving and cuddling. The stroller size is also perfect for throwing over a car seat. The crib size is perfect for the nursery.

One of the most popular Knit ‘n Needle Yarn Shoppe patterns designed by Aimee has recently been re-released, Bobbles for the Whole Family. I remember seeing this hat as a shoppe sample when I first went in and learned to knit. It is not uncommon to be out and about in Whitefish, Montana in the winter and see these hats on all sorts of people. We hope that you will discover how fun this pattern is for yourself. Knit up some for your family this summer so you are ready to start winter with a little fun with bobbles!
