I told you that I have been a bit under the weather lately. Well it suddenly came to me that maybe the amount of yarn I had selected for my latest blanket wasn’t nearly enough!
This was for two reasons
One (more serious!)
I was aiming for a ‘lap blanket’ so I was going to need a similar amount of yarn to that for my recent blanket. And the total weight of the yarn I had put together was only about half that!!!!!!
Two (still relevant)
Since I needed about 12-13g for a double row of the pattern, if a ball would give me a number or rows with an extra 10g left over that was not enough for a full row. Just having the total weight needed in the balls was still not enough.
So I went back to my stash and pulled out some larger balls that were colours that would harmonise (I rejected reds, oranges and yellows! – not many of those anyway.)
In order not to add in any almost full balls I decided to add in some of the neutrals that had been used for sea and sand blankets – still quite suitable I felt.
So here is the new selection. Iv’e completed a bit more of the blanket too. About time I added in some of the colours in the larger balls as they will provide more rows. Wouldn’t want to have several rows the same colour at the end!!
