My Blanket :)
Last Christmas, I received a gift certificate from my Goddaughter to Joann's. With the funds, I bought yarn to make myself a lap blanket for my couch.
I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice (which was on sale--I don't care if it is a gift certificate or not, I always use a coupon or buy yarn on sale :D ) in Chocolate, Dusty Green, Mustard, and Beige. I really liked the 70's vibe it gives off.
Because I love free patterns, I used a free pattern from Lion Brand called Modern Alchemy Afghan. I made 2 adjustments to the pattern. 1-because I hate weaving in the ends, I went with 4 rows instead of 2 when changing colors. 2-I wanted a mirror imaged pattern, so half way through the blanket, I went with 8 rows in the middle then changed my colors opposite from the way I did when I started. (clear as mud? ha ha ha)
I actually finished this blanket months ago and I use it all the time (even in the summer!). I love it!!! Thank you, Nicole!!! :)
