Leftovers

A few weeks ago I asked for suggestions for how to use up odds and ends of leftover yarn. One of those suggestions was to make a Project Linus blanket by crocheting an edging around some fleece. It's a fast easy way to dress up a yard of fleece, especially if you use a skip stitch blade in your rotary cutter to pre-cut the holes. The yarn that I am using for this blanket is called Bliss by Caron. The label says that it is "plush furry softness" and they aren't kidding...it's just about the softest yarn I have ever worked with and it makes a wonderful fuzzy binding! You can find full instructions for this blanket at www.skipstitch.com/instructions.

I think that is an excellent idea. What a nice soft gift....I'm sure who ever gets it will love it.

I've never heard of a skip stitch blade. Neat!

What a great idea, Susan. Thanks for turning us on to it. I think it would be worth your while to check out my blog again! ;);)

What a great idea! I have used stitched on fringe fleece, but this would be about as fast and it's something I could do sitting in my chair away from the machine. Thanks!
