Granny Stripe Afghan {picot edging}

This afghan is the perfect project to use up your scrap yarn bits. I wanted lots of color in this afghan, so I grabbed a new color after two rows without planning or plotting. This is a lap sized afghan and perfect for movie night with your Lovies or snuggling while reading a favorite book.

I made a larger Granny Stripe Afghan last winter using gray as a unifying color and it's HUGE; I love this smaller version as well. The picot edging was new for me; I  adore the way it finishes off this little lap blanket.

Lots of colorful yarn made this a fun project. Raiding my stash to create something useful and pretty was a fun way to wile the gloomy, cold days away. And I loved learning a new stitch in the border edging. Next, I want to try making this in a rainbow variation for one of my girlies.
