... but what can I do, when there's an immediate need of a non wooly, large blanket?
Some time ago, last year, or the one before, I bought some acrylic yarn for a crochet blanket. I did some swatches, but it never went further. Good thing, because now I could start right away.
I've got Vanna's Choice in several colors to play with. I'm going to knit stripey strips, and with each one, the blanket will grow. It's supposed to be full sized.
I've put everything else on hold, except my spinning. I'm using 5.5mm needles, and am hoping that it's going to fly off my needles. It's mindless knitting, but I try to still be mindful while knitting it.
For some reason I don't understand, Denny is VERY interested in this "yarn". He leaves my wooly yarn alone, but I've been chasing him away from the baskets several times now. He also drops his squeaky toy into the basket, and looks at me like, it's not his fault he has to stick his nose into it.
