Scrappy Blanket - Complete

Scrappy Blanket

It was worth it!

Saving all those leftover threads...

Tying them all together...

Knitting up the squares...

And joining them all!

Scrappy Blanket

I am totally in LOVE with this Scrappy Blanket.

It has been the perfect time of year for piecing it all together.

We're in the thick of Winter here at the moment - and the evenings really do get mighty cold. The heating system here is one of those central systems, where you have to heat the whole house... and I really don't see the point in doing that - especially if I am the only one up!

I've been toasty and warm though.

With the blanket sitting on my lap as I work - I've been warmer and warmer with every square that was added.

So my new Scrappy Blanket is now the Couch Blanket...

Mr Goldfish loves it - and so do the kiddies. I've made it a single bed size - which means it's large enough for two people to snuggle under - or even three...

And there are loads of squares leftover, too!

As you can see, I've joined my squares in a basket weave pattern... where one square sits horizontally and the next one vertically. I love the effect of the stripes all criss-crossy like this.

Just LOVE!

Now what to make with the leftovers?

(I haven't counted them yet - but I'm pretty certain I've only used about half of them)

Could be another blanket - Because I know there will be tussles over this one...
