Christmas Blanket 2005

I make a full sized blanket for someone in my family every Christmas. This is the blanket I made for my mother in 2005. She is crazy about purple! I like Lion's Brand Homespun yarn because it softens-up after washing and using fabric softener. The whole blanket is done using size 13 needles and garter stiching (knit only). There isn't a pattern to follow except for keeping every square the same size, and deciding on what color scheme. I used to sew the squares together, but now I like to knit them together as I progress so that the blankets are stronger. You can make this type of blanket as big or as small as you want.

    Hi there. I am just wondering. How do you knit together the squares?

    Ehm, I just realized it is perhaps your mother in the picture. In that case, you're mom is cute as pie! ;-)

    Yep, it's my mom- and I also think she's cute. Thanks for the reply on the blanket. I'm new to sharing my work, and you gave me my first compliment!
