|Caron Cakes Spice Cake|
It's about 20 inches in length so far and slightly wider than anticipated.
I was a little worried about having enough yarn but if each skein knits up to within a couple of inches of the first skein's fabric, I'll have enough to make this blanket more like a bedspread than the intended snuggle-while-watching-TV throw. We'll see how the yarn holds out. I've had issues before with Caron Cakes' yardage varying wildly between skeins.
The color is a little harsh for my taste but Sarah loves it and that's what's important. The orange is very fall-ish and since I've been suffering from Fall Fever since July 1st.... It's a fun project to knit on. I've also been thinking that instead of knitting a giant, bedspread sized blanket, I could make it the intended length and have yarn left over to knit a matching pillow. A pillow with removable attachments. I'm picturing olive green leaves for summer, acorns for fall, a black pumpkin face for Halloween and something for spring. If you focus on the yellows in it rather than the oranges, it's very daffodill-y.
What I need is to hurry up and knit the blanket and be done with it before it turns into a never ending, life-long project.
