Project Linus Blanket #33
It’s been a while since I’ve finished a blanket for Project Linus. Looking at my pictures I see that the last one was in April. After that I was crocheting gifts. Baby gifts, birthday gifts and Christmas gifts. It kept me busy!
I had actually started this one in April after the last one was done. I grabbed a bag out of my totes and arranged the yarn in my crochet bag.
I had six rows done… and that’s where it sat until Christmas. Once I got started on it again it only took me about a week to finish it. Of course, I still have to weave in the ends, but we can do that later.
It wasn’t my favorite yarn to use. The only one I enjoyed was the black as that was the Nicole Stitch Studio yarn that is no longer produced. Although, I’ve heard that since Michaels bought A.C. Moore their Value Smart yarn is now very similar to the Stitch Studio. I haven’t purchased any to find out, but that’s what I hear.
The darker variegated is a Michaels value yarn (their brand name) that was definitely produced before they bought A.C. Moore. It feels a lot like Red Heart Super Saver, which I think is the brand of the light blue color and the other blue variegated yarn that I used in the middle of the blanket (they no longer have bands on them). The bright blue color is an old one. I must have pulled this out of my mom’s stash. It is a TMA Yarns and has an Ames price tag on it. At that time you could purchase this 8 oz skein for $1.99. It feels like a Red Heart Super Saver clone.
I am currently working on a birthday present, so I won’t be able to share that with you for a while, but once it’s done I will reach into my tote and pull out another bag that’s all kitted up and ready to go. These ripple blankets are quick and easy projects. I definitely need to do better than just four Project Linus blankets this year!
