a new favoriteFriday, October 26, 2007
It doesn't matter what time of year it is, anytime we curl up on our sofa, it's always with a blanket. There has always been one favorite. Until now, that is. Last week, I mentioned to Erin that I was collecting all of my old sweaters. Not hand knit sweaters, but nice sweaters that just didn't seem to fit me anymore. Erin suggested I make a blanket out of them. (Thank you, Erin.) I actually think I got off of the computer, grabbed those sweaters and started cutting. I used five sweaters, cut 2 13x13 pieces out of each sweater (front and back). This gave me 10 squares, not enough. I then cut the arms, and pieced two colors together to make a 13X13 square. I now had a total of 15, needing one more. Pieced some strips together, and now I had 16 squares. Just what I needed.
