I bought 2 different colour packs at the same time which I have done in the past. Normally they are delivered in 2 separate bags so it is easy to distinguish between the packs. But not this time. It was a bit annoying to try and work out which colours went together and then separate them so I could begin on the first blanket.
Not happy with it. Just put in the bag don’t know what yarn is for what cal no pattern
Can't wait to get started on Ross!!
I haven't yet managed to get around to this kit, but I have used Stylecraft Special yarn before to knit with. It's an easy yarn to use, soft but with enough "grip" to give a good tension whether crocheting or knitting. The colours are beautiful, the shades accurately reflected on the website, so you know what you are getting. I would definitely recommend this.
Ross Poldark blanket- a challenge!
Having not crocheted for awhile, the blanket is slow going, but the challenge is satisfying. Love the colours!
