Sweater blanket

You may well ask, "Why is there a pile of sweaters laid out on her bed?"  I would tell you, "That's no pile of sweaters - that's my new blanket!"  

The squares with pockets might be my favorite part of the whole shebang.

I've been saving my moth-eaten, pilled-beyond-belief wool and cashmere sweaters for years and finally had enough to implement my Big Sweater Blanket plan.  Dark gray fleece at half off from the fabric store completed said plan and here it is!  Good lord, it's warm and soft and snuzzley.  

Why only use the back when the front of a cardigan is so cute?

Couldn't you just crawl in?  I full expect the cats to call dibs, though the kids have already been wallowing in it.  2012 seems to be the Year of  Blankets around here, doesn't it?  This makes three so far - and it's still January!  Well, I haven't heard any complaints yet.

I think maybe I need a nap now...
