I originally bought this yarn to make a sweater. My skill level is not at "sweater" yet but I picked up this pattern free at Joann's awhile back and figured I would give it a whirl. I have done some "unknitting" on it but have finally got the pattern down. Hope to have it finished before the end of February so I can donate it as a nice warm lap blanket for someone at the rest home where we hold our guild meetings. I am adding to it every day as we watch TV at night! Finally found the perfect hand project for TV watching.
