Since I finished my cherry festival socks, I decided it was ok to start something else. And since there is an upcoming baby shower for the mother of my great neichew in February, I figured best get cracking on the blankie to go with it. I started with the cherry festival worsted. But since it took the dye differently than the sock yarn, after several rounds, I decided to rip it out. (Oh no!) The worsted is more pink and mauvey (is that a word?), while the sweater made with the sock yarn is more reds. I went to the local yarn shop and found some Wool Ease (which is machine washable) and it matches wonderfully. And trust me, that hat looking object, will be a baby blankie.
I better start working on it a little more.
