This is how I get in trouble.
A deal on Craftsy … and a purchase of samples …. My hands itch to try out the yarn, and with a four-hour drive (round-trip) to my son’s game this weekend, I took that opportunity of (almost) uninterrupted time to start a project. I’m trying that bias-basketweave pattern again, that makes it look like entrelac. Don’t quite know the proper name for it. The pattern that I copied it from is titled ‘Not Entirely Entrelac’ scarf, but I find it awkward, for some reason. This is how much I did, during the trip.
The baby yarn that I found in my stash a couple of weeks ago … has now turned to this. Bernat’s ‘From the Middle’ baby blanket. With the yarn I’m using, it’s working up fast and the pattern is taking shape nicely. I like the 3-D effect of the panels.
You know that sentence on the yarn labels about purchasing enough yarn to finish your project? Well, this is what happens when you don’t purchase enough yarn. You finish an item, to find that it needs another skein or two, to make it look complete. But since the manufacturer has discontinued the yarn, and you can’t find it again, then the yarn is recycled into something else. This is what has happened to this project. I think it’s time to revive this again.
I can’t let that yarn with those great colors just sit around, can I?
