70's style multicolour baby blankets

Recommended Posts

My mum used to knit all the time, and she's never thrown away a leftover piece of yarn. In the 70's we had a multitude of homemade sweaters, some of them in fantastic multicoloured yarn. It's all old acrylic yarn, the kind that almost squeaks. I don't think I'd like this in a sweater today. But for little blankets to go on top of the baby-carriages, I think using these leftovers are a very fitting homage to the crafts from my own childhood. So here we go. Lots of colours, one for me, and one for my future niece or nephew:

Thank you. :hug Actually, I was surprised I could make them all go together. They remind me a bit of stained glass windows. :)
