12/20 Finally decided that it really is fugly. Bonus: B man helped me wind the balls as I frogged.

Using yarn doubled, I swatched with 30 st to 4”. CO 226 st and plan on striping with 2 colors, maybe 3. We’ll see.

12/17 Was doing 3 st border on either side (RS: k1, sl wyif, k1; WS: sl1, k1, sl1) but the row gauge of the border is less than that of the horizontal herringbone, so I dropped the border st and may use the dropped yarn for fringe. But maybe not. We’ll see.

Also, am using Tickle Toes (802) for main body; tried striping with TOFUtti (852) and would rather just let all the colors in Tickle Toes develop without interference. So when I get to the other end of the blanket, must remember to do a 4 row stripe with TOFUtti, 4 rows in Tickle Toes, and BO.

Oh yeah; took pics today of progress + swatch. Swatch is TOEpaz, but I don’t think I’m going to use it at all in this blanket.

12/19 I’m starting to think that the rainbow yarn is just fugly, but color is not my forte (neither is getting accents where they’re supposed to be). Did a partial swatch on sz 2 needles w/ single strand and it still looks fugly to me. May BO what I’ve got so far and CO with TOFUtti.
