… but, true, no lap blanket. Not one to dwell on such a mistake, I went straight to my LYS that evening after work and bought a variety of Berroco Vintage in earth tones. I love the way stripes look so decided to knit up a blanket in nice, thick multi-colored stripes. There’s no real pattern here - just a five-row garter stitch border in each striped color and 17 rows of stockinette. What could be easier but still look so great?
I love the way it turned out — I worked on this during meetings and the colors made friends and colleagues smile. And it does look nice on my favorite model!
