Another blanket

I did not mean to crochet another blanket. Seriously not. But then my friend Tamara gave me this bag full of sock yarn scraps and leftover yarns … Little abandoned bundles, a bit tousled, very colorful. Most of them Regia. What could I do other than wind them into pretty little cakes?!

Now that it is June, those squares, circles, and triangles took on a life of their own.

And — WHOOSH — there’s a (lap) blanket.

I still need to weave in some ends, and I am not sure how to crochet a border of some sort. (Maybe some more granny stripes). However, it amazes me how variegated yarns can do each other good. How things work out with nothing but grannies. Always.

Hence, (more) pictures to follow.

  1. Carina, so cute! But seriously: you must have ghostknitters and -crocheters otherwise I don’t see how you did it.

  2. I really love your blanket!!! I like to use leftovers for my crochet projects too and it is indeed always a surprise how the variegated yarn turns out.
    Have a great day, Sigrid
