I've finished the blanket (or bed scarf if you look through certain catalogues ;o) ). It's not really as big a blanket as I originally wanted but I didn't want to buy any more wool so it's now a snuggly thing for the sofa. Perfect, light-weight, long-enough-for-two.


It's approx. 80cm wide and over 2 metres in length. I've used 6 balls from the stash (don't know what they were as I was gifted them) and I've bought 2 balls of 100g wool. Both were stylecraft, one was a wool mix (dk) and the other was acrylic (4ply). Worked on a 6mm hook, just trebles. So it's cost me £3.45 altogether - a bargain :o).

Brilliant! Isn't it great when you make something practical, and lovely out of something other people were throwing away, and the thing is, you'd never know! It looks great for snuggling up with.

Very, very nice :)
That looks so professional and so snuggly too. And how much would it cost to buy one half as nice....

I would call it a 'cuddle shawl' 'cause two people could cuddle inside of it! It's really beautiful!

very beautiful, Shell. I love the way the stripes worked out and use-up-the-stash projects are my very favorites!
