For a long time now I have wanted to make a blanket out of old sweaters. With this in mind, I  gathered old sweaters that would felt, I washed/felted them, and kept them aside for the stars to align. Finally, on the third snow day of the year, the time was right. Five sweaters produced enough pieces for a generous t.v. blanket-for-two.  Or a siesta blanket for one+kitties. 🙂

As always, I was drawn to the greens and blues. The next step is to sew with a zig-zag stitch around the edges of each piece, to reinforce them. This may take some time – I am halfway through the second row.

In my defense, the progress was slowed because last weekend I was spending time near another kind of green-blue surfaces, on a quick trip to Florida. heh…
