Yarn along 8/14/2013

This week, I am reading the Monsters of Templeton (so far, liking it a lot!)  and still working on the patchwork blanket.  This blanket is going to take me a while.

From the pattern, it looks like you should get 5 squares form every 2 skeins of yarn.  And i have so much yarn, that I decided to change the pattern again so it is a 7×7 squares and has 8 different stitch patterns.

But it is starting to look like i may not get 5 but only 4 squares form 2 skeins, so I may have to buy more yarn or change out a few squares to other colors I have enough of….. it is a work in progress.  The original free pattern for this blanket is here.

    I like it! Just enough pattern to keep it challenging yet easy enough to put down when you’re tired of it!

    I love the colors you have in the picture for the afghan. With all of the different stitches and colors it is going to be quite stunning.
