Finished this little baby blankie last night. I used the recycled yarn I told ya'll about in this post . For the blankie, I started out with a 'fiori esagano' and added a (dc, ch 1, skip next dc) rnd. Then I just repeated the 3 solid dc rnds with the mesh rnd. It measures 27" side to side. :)
**A thought on recycling yarn:
You may remember when I bought the scarf at the thrift store to recycle the variegated pink yarn. The scarf looked brand new - never worn or washed. Well - the yarn itself wasn't all that nice to work with - it must of been an old Sayelle. Definitely a difference in the quality from the yarns of today - kind of scratchy with thin spots. I'm not too sure that I will give this little blankie to the hospital - I might keep it for a lapghan. The little bit of scratchy-ness won't bother me. I believe I'll check out the yarn a little better next time before buying something to recycle.
