~ aww man! ~
I wrapped up the crocheting part of this little baby blankie last night, and then I ran it through the dryer with a few wets towels. It did not get softer. I was hoping that since the yarn feels like the rougher skeins of Red Heart Super Saver (not all RHSS colors are rough), it would soften up like the RHSS's, but it didn't. Now what am I supposed to do with it? I can't give it to a baby that's for sure. Dang! I guess I can just take it to our trailer at the campground and use it as a seat cover for one of the fold up chairs on the porch. The blankie measures 25" point to point, so it might be too big for that though.
The yarn was bought at Michaels craft store - it's called 'Craft smart' value - 100% acrylic. The 3 skeins I bought are (1) white and (2) 'tumbleweed'. Next time I go to Michaels, I'll check to see if the other colors are rough too.
Have a good day ladies. I think I'll go sit and pout for a little while. :)
eta: This 18 point round ripple is based on Angelfire's round ripple - I added an extra increase round at the beginning and then changed a couple things. I didn't write out a proper pattern for it - just notes.
