Cynthia (no blog) brought several bags of yarn to a recent knitting night. One of her friends no longer wanted the yarn and unfinished project so she donated it to the group. I took two partial skeins of Red Heart to make a baby blanket; thus, Mountain Meadows was created. I'll ask someone from the Western Region Oddball group to add a border, and the blanket will be ready for a child at the Seattle Children's Hospital.
I knit the blanket with 110 stitches on size 8 needles, using my favorite Checks and Ridges stitch. Each section is 5 inches, so the blanket is 25 inches square. I used all of the variegated yarn and had just a tiny bit of the purple skein remaining.
My project for the weekend is to eliminate several small balls of yarn.
