a solution for all those leftover skeins of yarn: the granny stripe blanket

you know those odd lengths of yarn that are left over after you finish a knit or crochet project? the 1/8ths of a skein which aren’t quite big enough to make anything out of? i’ve got a whole basket of those.

so, i’ve started a crochet project that will probably take the rest of my life to finish. i blame ali from snipsnaphappy and michelle from scissor quirk for this new obsession: creating a giant (and i do mean giant) blanket from all those yarn remnants. this blanket is over 60 inches wide, and when complete, will cover an entire full-size mattress.

Crochet Granny Stripe Blanket/Afghan - made from various leftover yarn remnants and scraps - acrylic, wool, cotton

there’s just one problem. it’s way too addicting! i couldn’t put it down yesterday.

  1. Oh my gosh – I love it! what a good idea!
    ps – i think you should crochet while in labor… focus between contractions. Think it work?
