I've had this stash forever. 10 skeins of Wisdom POEMS. (100% wool, single ply) I was thinking to do sweaters for the Fiona and Laila...but waited too long...and now they've outgrown the color palette, at least for a sweater. I just don't see this colorway on them anymore.
I have 10 additional skeins of this yarn in another color, and I'm 3/4 done with it. It is for Fiona. A log cabin blanket. Hereis the yarn I'm using for it.
I know Laila will love the blanket shown below. It's big enough to cover up a little kid watching cartoons. Not too big, not too small.
Here is the blanket ( 36"x52") My own pattern, clickhere. It's pretty generic.
Just 10st alternating blocks, seed st with stocking st. But I do share the details
about how many to cast on, needle size, etc. I had to tinker to get that right.
