Our lapghan took a little vacation to visit our Knitting Help Forum leader, Amy!
She had asked if she could help out with the blankets, so I re-worked our list of knitters to make it possible. Way cool!
She used some Wool-Ease "Natural Heather" yarn, in a basketweave design.
When I got the blanket back from her, I added some rows of garter stitch, with a bit of Plymouth Encore I had in my stash. Then I tried out some "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby, in a nice dark green. Lovely! (and I DO love that yarn!)
