Blanket interrupted

My 17 year old daughter decided to make a crocheted blanket for Project Linus and it inspired me to join in. We’ve both been working at our respective projects for a week or two now and are making fantastic progress. I’d upload pictures if the blog weren’t mildly broken at the moment (so much to tend to getting things running again!).

In any case, I finished my first skein and went to start the second…only to realize that the colors were off. It’s not so bad that I wouldn’t use it for myself but definitely bad enough that I wouldn’t gift or donate it. Apparently the dye lot wasn’t as consistent as I needed it to be. Going through the rest of the yarn netted three skeins that looked identical to each other and two more that were different to those. The one I had already worked up matched nothing.

So I guess it’s back to the drawing board. The yarn is a lovely mix of colors so it can be repurposed elsewhere. Hell of a way too grow your stash though!
