make time for.


knit this.

Now that I am no longer a student (or employed) I am back to knitting. I've done a few little projects over the last few years but nothing too exciting. This lap blanket may just have to be my first project. (Super easy for beginners!)

- 7 skeins of a blend of wool and mohair. 
- A US #36, 32 or 40 inch circular needle

Gauge: 1 stitch = approximately 1 inch in 1 x 1 rib (weight: 145 grams)
Finished size: approximately 26 inches wide by 56 inches long

Cast on 27 stitches.
Row 1: *k1, p1, repeat from * to last stitch, k1.
Row 2: *p1, k1, repeat from * to last stitch, p1.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have used all 7 skeins minus about 4 yards (or until piece measures 56 inches).
Bind off pattern and weave in the ends. (Little tip: rather than wrestling this yarn through the eye of a tapestry needle, just use your hands to weave in the ends.)
