My MIL gave me a huge tote of yarn after destashing her house. My husband said she always had year but he never saw her do anything with it. Hm. So I got it all. She loves pink, which was very apparent in this tote of yarn. I decided I should use some of it and since she spends all of her time at her house on the couch we decided I should make a lapghan for her. Better than other stuff I could make, right? I had 1 skein dark pink, 2 medium pink, and 3 light pink so that's the pattern I went with, tossing in some of my own white. 123212321232123... I think there are 33 roungs all together? That was a lot of dcs on the latter rounds...


I didn't measure it but I would say it's a good 36-40 inches across. It reminds me of those Jello desserts we had back in the say that would separate into the different layers of pink.

Speaking as a person who loves pink, I must say this is GORGEOUS! What a great way to use the yarn, Jexxican, I know she must have been thrilled with this!

Thanks Leslie!@ Actually, I haven't given it to her yet. I'm thinking I'll wait until her birthday in June. I just really needed to make something. Better to make an earlier bday gift than just something that will sit around my house, eh? Well, I guess it will sit around my house for 2 months but, you know...
