I’ve been debating how to best use the “Vanna’s Choice” that yarn fairy, Lisa, sent me.
While the idea of making an ‘All-Vanna’ blanket did occur to me, I vetoed that as a flagrant waste of this rare commodity! To provoke my creativity, I’m considering setting a limit for myself of about one part Vanna to two parts of my usual RHSS/vintage mix. That would mean I could use up to 28 rows of Vanna, a generous amount of ‘exotic’ color for one of my little ripples.
But first I wanted to see if I could get by with using far less. From the four, I chose ‘Rust’, figuring that just a little of this brilliant color would do alot!
I planned for 10 rows in an 84-row blanket, estimating that would take about one skein.
Because ‘Rust’ isn’t nearly as reddish as most rust yarns, – and ‘A Touch of Rust’ wouldn’t sound nearly as nice – I’m calling this one. . .
