A friend’s mother gave me her sock yarn left overs as she had no use for it any more and I decided to make a blanket out of it. Starting with one stitch, increasing by knitting into front and back of each last stitch of row (until each side measured 2 m / 6.5 ft., then decreasing), while using needles size 5 (US 8) it would soon become bigger and bigger. J would decide on the order of skeins and each stripe would be as big as a skein would go. It finally became a very light but very warm blanket that J loves to use. No wonder! I wish I had the words to describe how it feels like to be wrapped into it.
