Lap Blanket

After completing the log cabin blanket, I decided to use up the leftover wool, so I came up with the idea of a lap blanket; not too large, just big enough to cover a lap when sitting in the lounge, to keep out any wintry drafts.

I used the Granny Stripe pattern from Lucy's wonderful blog.

I edged the blanket with Lucy's Spot-On Edging although I added additional rows to my edging.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with the result, although I'm now going to give my wrists and thumbs a rest from the crochet hook for a while.
