One of the activities planned for this past Saturday's Worldwide Knit-in-Public Day was a yarn swap.
I received the Happy Baby yarn above, along with many other little crafty items. Sweet handwritten notes were attached to each gift giving tips on how it could be used.
(I've wanted a spool knitter for awhile so look forward to trying that out soon.)
In the meantime, I've started my first corner-to-corner baby blanket. I've watched friends working on them for a couple of years now and always thought it looked a bit difficult, especially the graphghans (changing colors within a project is not my forte). But it turns out a c2c blanket is made only using chains and double crochet, which happens to be my favorite stitch.
So far so good. Since I'm using the yarn I received, I will be doing a color change at the end of the row. And hope the decrease is just as easy as the increase has been.
