Now that I can smell summer in the air I don't need the blankets for some cosy warmth on my couch anymore, but much room to put them away until needed again we don't have around our house. Just in time I saw this great idea at Alisa Burke, one of my favorite blogs: a ladder made from branches and rope.
For the branches I used wood from the elderberry in our garden that we just cut and for the rope I used pink cotton I normally use for crochet. For extra strengthening I nailed the branches at the crossings, before I wrapped the yarn around.
On top hangs a blanket I'm still busy with. Well, not that busy, because the loose pieces are laying around for quite some weeks now, but sewing together the loose pieces to complete the blanket is something that I just don't like (or shall I say hate).
In the middle is a blanket I bought years ago in a store I don't even remember the name of.
At the bottom hangs a blanket I crocheted a couple of months ago (see here).
