Striped Lap Blanket - Blue, Green, Purple

| No Comments

Size: (Unknown) (donated in December 2002 to the convalescent home where my grandfather stayed; estimate 35 inches x 45 inches)
Colors: Navy, Green, Purple (fuzzy soft yarn - Lion Brand Homespun)
Pattern: (Unknown)
Book: (Unknown)
Date: November 2002

I was so tired of the colors of the yarn I had in my collection. So I went to Michaels Craft Store to see what I could find for inspiration. I saw this really soft, fuzzy yarn in these colors, so different from the colors I had been working with. So, I bought the yarn, which was expensive compared to the prices of regular acrylic yarn. Ah, well, it was nice to work with something different.

The strand of soft yarn is twisted with a strand of thin, narrow cord-like string/yarn, which makes it a little difficult to see where stitches are. The blanket felt so good to cuddle with when it was done!
