Now that I’ve pretty much used up all my bits and pieces of sock yarn knitting blankets and phone socks for the City Farm to sell, I’ve moved on to using other people’s oddments.
This included a bag full of leftover baby yarn given to me by a friend of a friend. To be honest, it really wasn’t my kind of thing at all.
I looked around for inspiration, and eventually came across this blanket on Heather’s lovely blog, made from the same kind of yarn. Which gave me the idea of seeing if I could do something similar with my bag of oddments.
I didn’t follow Heather’s pattern, but decided instead to use the same pattern as I used for the the Harmony Blanket (i.e. Lucy’s pattern from Attic 21) but without changing yarn at all – not needed with this self-patterned yarn.
To my surprise I rather like it. Definitely a case of the sum being greater than the individual parts.
It will be for sale on our stall at the forthcoming Bath Charity Fair. I do hope that someone else likes it enough to buy it.
