Passap Baby Blankets







Okay, I lied. My next post was not attaching the neckband without the sandwich. This is my excuse and I am sticking to it. 🙂

I have to thank Gillian for getting me back into my knitting room. I have been absorbed with quilting and having work done in my house and ignoring my beloved passap. Gillian sent me a picture of the baby blanket she made from my posting on February 5, 2014. It is a baby blanket by Jean Curry. I had to make a baby blanket for a gift and when I saw her pictures of her blankets I decided this would be the quickest to knit and I think it is very pretty. It is a tuck stitch and you don’t use the back bed pushers

So…….I learned one very important thing about the passap knitting machine . I learned that if I had stayed away longer, I would be following my own blog to learn all over again! hahahahahaha

I had to cast on 3 times.  I used the number 3 cast on and I don’t usually use that. I got out my book and casted on and I wanted a tighter tension. I removed the work and thought I remembered the racking sequence for the cast on and ended up doing it wrong. So then I finally cast on the third time. Now it is time to download. Went through the sequence and it beeped and I went through setting up and then it dawned on me that it did not say wait in the memo window of the console. I had disconnected my laptop awhile ago and thought maybe it was the wrong port . Nope. I repeated and nothing again. Then I started to laugh. My switch for going between download and knitting was not in the download position. LOL  But, the velcro piece that holds  it on top of the console had come loose and the box was hidden behind the console. Oh brother, now I have been in my knitting room for a half hour and I have not even knitted the 568 rows. I started it at 10 p.m. and walked out of my knitting room at 11 p.m with the cast off row on waste yarn. I was surprised since it felt like I was in there for hours.

I knitted the white one with Tamm star at tension 4 and I knitted the pink one at tension 5 and two strands of 2/24. You can tell that the white one came out smaller and shorter using a smaller tension.

By the way, for the new people following my blog, here is a link to my drop box to see what I have posted from the beginning of my blog up to  February of 2016 .

    Both of these look really lovely …the pink looks like ice cream !! I finished up knitting a cream one and its so rich. Had to laugh at your escapades…also had the same problem of forgetting to plug the machine cable back into the consol and got the resultant squeal !
    amazing how much we forget when we have not been knitting for a while… these will make such lovely gifts.

    • Thank you Gillian, for the compliments and for getting me back in my knitting room. 🙂

  2. I love them! Are the Jean Curry patterns available somewhere?

    • Hi Cristina, if you look at the archives of my blog, on the left, go to the month of February 2014. Scroll down and you will see a dark blue afghan made with this pattern. At the bottom of the description is the link to my drop box giving the instructions and file. Happy Knitting! Carol 🙂

    Beautiful baby blankets! You are so talented ted!!

    • Thank you Rhonda, you are so kind. I really don’t have the talent. My husband says he is the one with the talent. I laughed and asked him what talent he had and he said he has not tapped into it yet. lol If I had talent I would be writing the patterns instead of following someone else’s. I just know my machine.
      Carol 🙂

    Tks Marcia
