Custom Granny Square Lap Blanket #1 - Black, Cool Scraps

| No Comments

Size: 33 inches x 46 inches
Colors: Black, Scraps in cool colors (Red Heart Classic and Super Saver)
Pattern: Granny Square Blanket (6 squares with unique patterns; 6 solid squares with same pattern) - Design by Cheryl Lambert
Hook: H
Date: start November 19; finish November 24

I started by making 12 unique granny squares in a variety of colors from my large collection of miscellaneous yarn scraps. When the 12 squares were done, it was obvious that there were 2 groups of colors: coolish and warmish. So I decided to make divide the 12 squares into 2 sets of 6 squares and make coordinating solid-color granny squares to coordinate with them. This is the first of the 2 resulting lap blankets: the cool colors blanket.

[Update 5:22pm December 7, 2006] This blanket is one of two I donated as a door prize to today's winter party at the college where I work. So, it is no longer a 2006 donation blanket.
