Lap blanket or shoulder blanket. It will be handy come next fall and winter; perhaps even this spring!
I really like this one. It's knit in bulky yarn on size 11 needles (8mm). It measures 22" x 47". Fiber snob that I am, I don't usually knit with man made fibers, but this is an acrylic/wool blend (more acrylic than wool). Even at that, the finished piece has some weight to it, and of course it can go in the washer. Plus, it was inexpensive. It's pictured here set out to dry.
