What are you most proud of? I saved yarn sample swatches from being landfill! I used yarn samples that I got free from work to make the blanket. Though it took me a while to unravel the swatches, they are really good quality super soft yarns. This blanket will keep someone in poor Appalachian region warm for the winter. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used Bond ISM (simple knitting machine) to knit this, but it can be also done by hand.
