I originally wanted to make a throw blanket that would cover our old, unsightly sofa as well as keep us warm in the winter months while reading, watching tv, or working on craft projects.
As sometimes, (okay, often), happens, the sofa was gone long before I finished the blanket, but it still works nicely in the front room. (There was a long delay between deciding on yarn and colors and what pattern I wanted to use.) Being made with worsted wool it is more than warm enough to ward off winter chills. The blanket is rather large, but oh, so cuddly!
