Get your knitting friends together to all knit one square per month. At the end of the year, swap squares and put them all together. Revestir Revestir Madden- this is totally something you would do! But we are each others only knitting friends!
Great idea: "For this blanket, Jane used double moss stitch and knit five "scarves" that were then sewn into one big blanket." Find a scarf pattern (or two) and then make scarves in to a blanket. More interesting than knitting a whole blanket!
