It’s Not Love

But maybe a one-night stand.

Since I’m not really in love with it, I decided not to do an elaborate border.  Afterall, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.  Ha-ha-ha.  I shouldn’t say that.  She’s not hideous, but more of the homemade soap variety.

I did enjoy making this blanket.  It’s a combo of cotton yarns and acrylic yarns…just what I had in my stash.  The white border is a round of sc, then *(sc, ch 3, 3 dc) in same stitch, skip 2 st, repeat from *.  It’ll make a good car blanket, and that’s exactly where it’s going.

  6. What's not to love about a granny blankie? Great way to use up your stash and random lengths left over from other projects. Now you get to buy more yarn! If you ever need it while out cruising you will love it then, being cold is never fun. What-ya makin' next?
