I am really liking how this scrappy blanket is looking, I tried it as stockinette and then garter, and garter was a winner because it looked more scrappy with the variegated yarns. Although it has meant the blanket is a lot thicker than expected, and probably smaller...
At this stage I am not going to stitch them together as I knit (as I usually do) in case I decide to add to it at the end using a new/additional scrappy ball. I worry that it might be obvious where one collection ended and the other start (if that makes sense).
I must say, 4 and a bit squares down and the ball doesn't seem to be shrinking any!
And a little bit of cuteness because I always have a cute audience when I go outside for photos :D
