Blue and Green Lap Robe

Usually, when I’m doing a crochet project, I work on one item until I am done and then move on.  This last month has been very different in that I began a baby afghan and put it into my crochet bag, so I work on it when I am at a guitar recital or a meeting or during Fellowship Hour at church.
When I was working a few days at the high school, I couldn’t take my crochet bag, but dropped a ball of 4 ply cotton and one hook into my school bag.  This came in handy when I had a couple extra minutes during a bus ride, so I have part of a potholder done.

Meanwhile, at home, I have partial skeins of yarn all in a row on the coffee table for working on a lap robe.  They are laid out for easy viewing because I wanted to decide the order to work stripes and colors.
The projects from scraps can often put my skills as a visionary into overdrive.  I’m more of a step-by-step person, so when I tie off the last row and hold up the finished blanket, I’m almost as surprised at the ending as anybody.

this lap robe got done last evening

    Thank You for your sweet comments.

    Yes, indeedy, the stripes look nice together.
    The colors of yarns actually is 8, and the light green had only about 30 inches left when I quit using it.
    The blankie went through the laundry just fine, and is ready for a new home.
