thinking about doing a mitered squares blanket, with various-sized squares (cheryl brunette has a nice video how-to at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDGxPfRUpR0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-Ca2icMjak).
i’m not going to do some crazy expensive yarn for it, even tho a noro would be awesome, i know. i’d like something fairly inexpensive because of the size, easy-care, non-pill, and soft (even if the ‘soft’ happens AFTER washing!). also, an ombre, stripe, gradient, or other color-change yarn would be preferable. also, easy-to-get, either locally or via internet ordering.
so far i’m thinking about deborah norville’s everyday prints (http://www.joann.com/deborah-norville-collection-everyday-print-yarn/zprd_10143345a.html#prefn1=refinementColor&sz=90&srule=price-low-to-high&prefv1=Multi&start=1) as they’re advertised (and reviewed on multiple sources) as little-to-no-pilling, easy care, etc. and they come in multiple colors (am liking the beach, oak moss, toasted marshmallow and winding river colorways).
so, any suggestions? thanks!
