6.2.10: chained 210. It’s about 48” wide. I think I“m going to need double the yarn I bought if I want to make it a big blanket. $$ Oh, well….that’s why I work!

6.5.10: I ripped out what I had mainly because of size issues. Once I did my calculations of how the yarn was being used up, I realized that I would need 3x the amount, and that was just too much. So I started again with a chain of 158 and now it’s 42”. I also changed my hook to a 4.00mm from a 3.00mm. It’s looser and feels softer. Thirdly, I’m doing more of a thoughtful colour progression rather than completely random.
