My SO has decreed that I must make a lap-blanket. That is all well, and good, but I have no idea where to start. I need a pattern, something that is a little more than a simple garter stitch rectangle (I am not looking to lose my mind), but it needs to be relatively light. See, we live in North Texas, so the days that this item is really needed will be limited, so if it is light, it will be more useable.
I saw Jared Flood's Hemlock Ring Blanket, and while it is a beautiful project, it is not something that I am ready to tackle (maybe in a couple of years).
