This project has been bugging me for several months. It really wanted to be started. I had been hoping to use Knit Picks Brava because I had the colors already stashed for other projects and was sure to have leftovers. It’s a nice acrylic and I didn’t think I would mind making a whole afghan out of it. Knit Picks wasn’t going to have more of the orange and white in stock for a while, I really didn’t want to wait any longer. It is also more expensive than Red Heart and money is kind of an issue right now. I finally bought the yarn and prepared to have my hands shredded by the cheap acrylic. Red Heart seems to have changed their Super Saver line a bit, the yarn was softer than I thought. It’s definitely not the softest acrylic on the market but it has been really tolerable. I mean, damn near… nice.
I got this far on the blanket and decided that I wanted it wider.
I don’t mind ripping this one out if it means I get a blanket that is big enough to snuggle under. This is for me so I don’t have time frame. If I have it done by Halloween, great, if not, I’ll live and it will be just as fun to have something Halloweeny to work during the season.
