In July, after making the last bunch of granny square and scrap blankets, I needed a break from having to hide so many yarn ends! It was time to switch to using a bunch of the same type and color of yarn. A woman at work donated 7 skeins of this yarn to me last year. I thought it would be just enough to do one lap blanket.

Wrong! Although the blanket could have been left as it was after 7 skeins, I felt it was too narrow. I put the blanket aside to think about it some more and began working on a different blanket.

In early August, Mom and I stopped by Michaels Craft Store after lunch one weekend and, lo-and-behold, I bought 2 more skeins of the same yarn. Wow!

So, I was able to make this blanket wider. It was finished in August.
