I like the texture this stitch creates and it was certainly easy to make but it’s a little bulky for me in a baby blanket. Next time I’ll try a sport weight (vs worsted) yarn and see if I like that better.
Chris and Rae are coming this weekend for the Gasparilla children’s parade so I pulled out all the baby and small child size afghans for him to take back and donate for me. I had planned to send him back with some quilts too but I didn’t get them washed so those will have to wait for the next visit.
Yarn – Sprightly Spectrum Worsted. I got a few skeins of this yarn on sale at Bluprint but I won’t be buying more of it. I love the colors but the yarn isn’t well spun and slits easily, also finishes fuzzier than I like. I’ll use what I have for hats since I don’t expect them to last more than a season or two before being outgrown or lost!
I can’t abide sitting with idle hands … since I can’t seem to sleep tonight I started another corner 2 corner blanket. It’s pretty in this colorway and I like the feel of the yarn – it’s an easy care acrylic and the first time I’ve used it.
