I’m coming out of my knitting hiatus. It was just SO hot the last few months; it was hard to think even think about yarn. That’s hot!
Anyway, my next big project will be a baby blanket for my new niece or nephew :cheering: and I’m struggling with yarn choices. I found a pattern or two I like, but I want something other than the typical baby yarn. I’d like it to be durable and washable, but possibly a natural fiber or a portion natural. I need a worsted or DK weight, but I think I’d prefer worsted. It needs to have that ooh-ahh factor with softness.
I think I want to stay away from pastels or primary colors. I think with my sister’s house and personality, it needs to be an earthy color. I love the Mission Falls colors, but I think the cotton will be too heavy and the wool just isn’t soft enough for a baby blanket.
I’d love to have a hand-dyed or a yarn with personality. It needs to speak to me and keep me entertained.
Any ideas for the perfect yarn?
