One of the ladies who works in the library at the college donated 3 5-ounce skeins of brick red yarn with dark green strands running through it. I didn't want to make a "Christmas" lap blanket with it since I want the blankets used also when it isn't Christmas time, so I selected a pattern that I thought would work with the red-and-green yarn and used black to tie the red-and-green together. I think it worked very well! The edging is a combination of other edging patterns I've used through the years.
