A Friend gave me box of yarn.
I had never worked with it before.
 It was soft and squishy and just screamed,
"make me into a blanket".
So I did.
The yarn is soft, and smooth. 
Like working with thick silk.
This blanket is so very soft,  squishy and warm
It is perfect for a baby blanket or lapghan.

This pattern can be made as big as you want,
The size is totally up to you and your needs.
