On Nnenna's Needles #8

What's better than cozying up with a good book and a soft blanket on a gray day? :)

Spiraling Star Blanket



I made this blanket for just such days, when I'm curled up on my little couch in my dorm room reading a novel.  It's the perfect size to cover my lap and my feet and made from a soft wool blend.  I was of course immediately drawn to the star shape that radiates out from the center.  Also, due to some miscalculation on my part, I ran out of yarn at the end.  Luckily, I had some of this multicolored ribbon left over from some craft project, so I used that to finish it off and crochet a smooth edge around the border. 

On another note- in approximately one week I will be on spring break, returning to my sunny home state of CA!  Only two midterms and one paper stand in my way- let the countdown begin! :D

Haha your needles will never cease wonder! I also like to cover up my legs when I read. It just makes reading so much cosier.

What a unique blanket, and kudos to you for making it. I decided a while back I needed a lap quilt for curling up on the couch, and sadly I haven't gotten too far on it... Annie.
