Mile-a-Minute Contest Favorites #29 Lap Blanket - Red, Christmas (multi)

| No Comments

Size: 36 inches x 48 inches
Colors: Scarlett (Caron Sayelle), Traditional Christmas (variegated) (Soft Creations)
Pattern: #29 by Bessie Ann Persinger
Book: Contest Favorites Mile-A-Minute Afghans - Leaflet 3144 - Copyright 1999 - Leisure Arts
Hook: G
Date: May 2005

Another fast pattern (started May 28, finished May 31)! The Caron Sayelle yarn in Scarlett is thinner than other Sayelle colors, so I teamed it with the Traditional Christmas yarn from Soft Creations from my stash. Both are 4-ply worsted, but thinner than most 4-ply worsted.
