World Series Blankie

A quick, mostly picture post before I have to get the kiddies out of bed and off to school...

Here's what I've been working on, just in time for the cold weather, a comfort knit!

This blanket is made of various yarns which I have been collecting and hoarding for 15 years! I started & knit on it during the World Series. So far it's about half done...

The yarns vary from sport weight to worsted. There are three main textures: a squishy woolly single ply, a thick and thin multi-fiber, and a boucle.

This has been a really fun knit so far and I'm SO glad to finally be using this yarn that has been sitting in the stash for too long!
