- A: It's cold.
- B: We used up two month's worth of energy holiday-ing.
- C: Well, I guess really just those first two things. But it seems like there should be more.
This was a few days ago, so I'm already much further along than the picture shows. This is Attic24's Granny Stripe Blanket, and I've already made a baby-sized version for a friend.
The yarn is 100% acrylic, Stylecraft DK something-or-other. I only use acrylic for big blankets. This one is for the couch, and I'm glad to have something that is low maitenance. I bought the yarn from a UK site, deramores.com. They have a great package, and with free shipping to the US right after Christmas, I got 17 balls at around $2 a ball. The colors are just what January needs. I might not be too far from that bright and fresh Martha Stewart start to the year after all! Just don't look at the rest of my house.
