What to do when waiting on new yarn to finish a blanket…… start another blanket!
Introducing Strawberries and Cream –
While red and pink may not be everyones cup of tea, I am really enjoying it. I chose a granny square blanket because I like the look but mainly because I don’t have to give it any thought while I am making it. The only real thought that went into it were the colours and the combination to use, which took about five minutes. I went with uniform colour in the middle (white) and alternating the other two rows.
The simplicity has been such a nice change from Mr. Stripes, I still question the stitches and colours for that one. It must be the difference between using a tried and tested pattern and going out in the wilderness with a new style (which has every chance of failing!).
Anyway, now that I am three rows in, can you guess what has happened? That right, I am running out of yarn for this blanket now. This is working out to be an expensive venture! A new order will have to wait until I have saved some more coins. In the mean time I have a rather large job to do, weave in ALL those ends. It looks like that will take longer then making the squares themselves.
For my future reference.
