Another blanket

I did not mean to crochet another blanket. Seriously not. But then my friend Tamara gave me this bag full of sock yarn scraps and leftover yarns … Little abandoned bundles, a bit tousled, very colorful. Most of them Regia. What could I do other than wind them into pretty little cakes?!

Now that it is June, those squares, circles, and triangles took on a life of their own.

And — WHOOSH — there’s a (lap) blanket.

I still need to weave in some ends, and I am not sure how to crochet a border of some sort. (Maybe some more granny stripes). However, it amazes me how variegated yarns can do each other good. How things work out with nothing but grannies. Always.
