This yarn is impossible to photograph to get the color right. I assure you that it's a very pretty pale purple. This is one super soft little blanket!
It finished to about 32" x 35" and that red marker is where I was at the last update. From this photo it looks like the last skein was a different dye lot. Fortunately this isn't visible in real life.
I know it takes longer but I do love putting borders on blankets. I don't do it often but it was the border that drew me to the pattern.
Here are all the details:
Yarn: Yarn Bee Sweet Delight, 3 weight, about 1200 yards
Pattern: Vintage Inspired Fan Stitch blanket by Blossom Crochet
Hook Size H, 5.0mm
This photo is the closest to the real color of this yarn but it's still not quite right.
I bought this yarn at the Hobby Lobby clearance last year and I have one skein left. I'm going to try some baby hats to use it up but it's possible that I will make one and then just donate the rest to a local group. This whole blanket cost less than $4!
Speaking of the Hobby Lobby annual clearance, it happened at my HL this week. I happened to go there the day she was marking everything down. I have a rule that I don't buy more than I can carry in my arms. No carts allowed! Although the nice lady working there offered me her cart. This year I picked up yarn for 3 - 4 charity projects and one of them was another color of this yarn. The other 2 yarns will be for shawls or wheelchair blankets. I got 2 bags of yarn for $18! I'm really glad that I didn't take her up on the cart offer. I could have gone a little crazy.
I still have my other 2 crochet projects in process and am making good progress. I like working on a different project each night so I'll start a new baby blanket soon and I think it will be with more of last year's HL clearance yarn.
