Spare Yarn Blanket Set
I have been using up all this yarn that I got for my birthday (which is today, but I got the yarn about a week ago) and I was given a lot of yarn from my grandma when she visited 1 month ago. So now i have 1/4ths of balls and some 1/2 balls. As well as 1 ball of yarn I got that I wanted to us before I buy more yarn. I am going to make a blanket (with sleeves, like a snuggy) and 2 throw pillows. As well as a little blanket to put on my chair to make it softer.

Happy birthday! Love your ideas, they sound like a lot of fun. Will your projects be lots of mixed colors? That would be really cool.

Sounds like a great idea for spare yarn. No doubt your grandma will be thrilled to see what you have done with the yarn she has given you. Have you got a pattern you are working to?
