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.
