It’s time to see how my next three fleece/yarn combos turned out!
I think the solid brick-red fleece and RHSS Painted Desert are a Great Match!
The piece of mocha fleece that I edged with Red Heart Strata, a discontinued worsted weight acrylic, looks real good too, quite masculine.
I remember buying a couple different colorways of this self-striping yarn back when I was about to learn how to knit socks. According to these yarn color charts that must have been sometime around 2006-8.
I’m happy to have finally found a good use for this fun yarn, in colorway ‘Mosaic’, cuz it turned out that I don’t like wearing 100% acrylic socks, at all. Gave away the one pair that I’d finished.
I still have to work in the two yarn ends on this one. – That’s yet another nice thing about doing these fleece blankets; they have only two ends. Yay!
What a nice match between the orange edging and football helmets! It’s rather funny that a vintage orange yarn matched so much better than any current one.
These blankets were such fun to make!
I’m very anxious to start my next so I grabbed this skein of ‘Water Lily’ from stash as inspiration. It looks like next week’s blankets will be for girls.
P.S. My Fleece Blanket Photo Tutorial is so long I’m splitting it into two parts. This Friday, September 6th, I’ll post Part One – Preparing the Fleece.
