Knitting Lap Robes For Veterans

Lap Robes are great TV knitting projects. You can keep warm while the lap robe grows longer in your lap.
130 stitches on size 10 needles is slow knitting. Lap robe takes 3 skeins of Red Heart yarn. (size 36x36 inches)
Garter stitch is mindless knitting.
This lap robe is for a WWII veteran.

The yarn is a beautiful blue! Man, I bet you were knitting that last week when it was freezin' in these hills. lol We've turned on the heat several times already.

I love the colour of your lap robe and I love garter stitch too!

Hello there, I followed a link from Miss Woolly Knits, that's such a beautiful shade of blue yarn, one of the perks of knitting a lap robe is keeping warm and cosy while you work.
