The Blanket that Busted my Stash!

This basket-weave pattern was done with two skeins of yarn, one a constant green and the other a series of the blue and green oddballs from the stash -- and they're almost ALL GONE! Time to go yarn shopping with a clear conscience! (Michaels has Patons Classic Wool on sale today for $4)

I look at your blanket & I see the ocean. Perhaps a child in Afghanistan who has never seen the ocean will now also have an idea of what it's like. Nice job.

Isn't it exciting to go yarn shopping? Books & yarn...my heaven. Have fun!

Thank you both. I made this blanket in the evenings, under a compact fluorescent bulb, where it just looked like a blotchy green blanket...I honestly didn't realize how colorful it was until I took it into the sunlight to photograph it! I think I'll have to get one of those "daylight" lamps so I can see what I'm making...

Barbara,
I love it too!
Is it knitted or crocheted?

Shirley, it's knitted - I don't crochet.
