I believe the Friendship Blanket Shrug is the perfect name for this knit project. It was born from left over sock yarn I had in my stash and the very many bits and pieces of left over sock yarns received from friends over a span of time. I started to knit a scarf at first, but the yarn just kept coming, so it evolved into a lap size blanket. I kept on knitting still receiving left over yarns from friends…
It was only after about two to three years, and many other projects on the go, that I decided I wanted to finish the blanket. But what can I do with a piece that now measured 88″ in length and 20″ in height? Ah! Fold it up to make sleeves and voilà… so easy and simple.
The colours and the linen stitch of this shrug remind me of a Mexican blanket making it a versatile shrug that pairs up perfectly with denim jeans.
