Tag-along Scrap Blankie

Over the past few months I've been working on a cool scrap blankie made with all kinds of scraps of yarn, a lot of it contributed by friends.   It's ideal for whatever amount of leftovers you've got because lengths of  yarn are simply tied together, and the tied ends are left to add texture  to the finished product. 

Even a few feet of leftover yarn works.  If you're a crazy yarn scrap hoarder (translation: normal knitter), this makes it possible to use up all those appealing snips and snaps that weren't really long enough to use for much of anything.

And the little tufts are adorable - and they feel good to pet. 

In other news, if you're curious about how I shrank my tummy, check the link over there, AllNewMe.  It's good stuff.

And...Bebe is starting to walk.  Already.  She's growin' up so fast!  And loving those faux animal prints.  You're never too young to have style.
