Whilst sorting through yarns before putting them in the boxes, I realised I did have quite a lot of used odd balls, some nearly full balls, others well used. So yesterday I decided to make a start on a stash buster baby blanket, using up the odd balls. Initially I was going to do it in a regimented stripe, 2 rows per colour, but then changed my mind and decided to simply keep going with each colour until the ball ran out, so making a completely random pattern in terms of stripe width. Here it is so far:-
Incidentally, it's on our new recliner chair, which is sooooo comfy.
There are 4 colours in the blanket so far, just half a stripe of the pale pink, it doesn't show up very well in the photo. I thought the random nature of the blanket might appeal to a young mum with a quirky individual style. I'm not totally convinced by it as yet, but we'll see how it works out. What do you think?
