Lap Blankets..

 I decided to make  a lap blanket using all those funny little ends of wool that just end up in a box.

It's great to put waste wool to good use and it crochets really random which I rather like!

I like the way the colours blend together and as the yarn is used double thickness it makes the blanket really warm and cuddly.

Jaffa loves it.

Sherbert Rainbow Star

This yarn reminded me of that  tangy sugary sherbet I used to eat when I was little.

I think it was worth the time and effort it took to get it to this size.

I used the spare yarn from my wool stash without buying anything new to complete it
