Bernat Super Value

Hey all.

I started knitting a blanket for my SIL that my grandma had started ages ago & because of arthritis, she can no longer knit. So I took over the project & it appears I am running low on yarn. Gma bought the yarn ages & ago, but its Bernat Super Value Navy. I googled it & found somewhere to purchase another skein, but I was wondering if this is a bad idea to buy another skein so long after the original purchase. I know Bernat Super Value doesn’t have a dye lot so I thought it might not be too-too bad, but I’m just not sure.

My 2nd option is to take out a couple cables from the completed panels so that I would wind up with enough yarn to stitch them together and to add fringe. This just sounds like an awful lot of work for a $3.00 skein of yarn though…

Thanks for the help!!!

I’m no expert, but I would think that because there are no dye lots, you should be OK. Do you have enough left of the current skein so that you can alternate rows from each skein to make the transition a little smoother, just in case?

That’s not a bad idea! Thanks!!!

Hi Patti,

I’ll have to say I’ve found big differences in shades, even on no dye lot yarns. It’s definitely worth a try, though. Just in case, do you have enough of the original for the main piece, so you just use the new yarn to sew it together and for fringe?

Let us know how it works out.
