things to KNIT


Rainbow Stripe Baby Blanket


An easy, quick knit
is also a great way
to use up your stash of leftover yarn. 

Once upon a time, but not so long ago, I was organizing my stash of yarn. This organizing is a futile project, really. My stash consists of mostly leftovers or scraps from previous projects, but also a few yarns I had purchased in the fiery throes of inspiration... and then never used. I must admit, I have quite a bit of yarn stashed in my house, and when I organize I find ever new ways to group them, without really getting rid of anything at all. While looking at all I have in the closet, I realized that I had enough colors of Lily Sugar ‘n Cream that I could line them up in a rainbow… and so I did. The yarn rainbow was my inspiration for this blanket.
