Last year, while I was knitting my 29 blankets, I knitted one extra (I think it was number 19). I didn't have enough of two yarns colors at the house and I was wanting to knit so I just started adding scrap yarn together. Of course, then I ran out of scrap yarn and had to go buy more to actually finish this blanket.
Originally, I thought I'd sell it as one of the 29 but then realized that would be so random. 28 striped blankets and then this one! This random one! #odd.
So I kept it aside and powered through the remaining blankets. And then sold them in November.
This one is still special to me though. I love the look. I love the warm color palette. I love the crazy changing yarns.
Like all the blankets, this was knit with simple back-and-forth garter stitch on size 15 needles. (I did 60 stitches per row if you want to make your own.)
Today, I'd love to give this blanket away to a reader. Just leave a comment... tell me your favorite post from 2014 and/or how long you've been reading my blog and I'll pick a random winner from the comments by the end of the week. Open to anyone, in the US or International.
GIVEAWAY CLOSED : According to random.org, the winner is Michelle who posted at 6:12AM on 1/6
