Thanks for the positive input, ladies! I will try it as soon as I can get all of the correct colors; I have a hard time finding wool sweaters in nice, bright colors, but it has happened on occasion! Also, I'm still trying to use up some of the yarn I already have, but I'll put this on the list of things to do =)!
Well, I finished another alphabet blanket! I don't like the colors on this one as much as I liked the rainbow blanket, but I was trying to use yarn that I already had since I need to save my money for postage and not buy any new yarn until I get my current box sent! The gray squares don't have letters on them, and I'm wondering if I should add some of that bright aqua fun fur to those few squares to liven them up; any opinions? And my enthusiastic helpers wanted to show you how a 35 square blanket would fit an average 4 year old and a slightly tall 6 year old =).
Its lovely as are the models! All the better for being a stashbuster. The alphabet looks great. It really stands out.Postage seems to have gone up all around the world. That's the downside of being a global village!! I paid $50 to send 35 squares where as last year it would have been about $38-$42 .I am really into using my stash now rather than buying yarn.
