Well, here I go again - the non-knitter unable to resist a yarn! I hope you can get an idea from the photo of how irresistible these balls were - thick, soft, chenille like yarn. It is "super-bulky" which would mean something to an actual knitter.
It drove me crazy! lol I tried to knit the simple pattern on the label for a baby blanket that was basically just an enlarged discloth pattern - the one where you start in one corner and work up to the widest part and then back to the far corner again with an eyelet edge. No way could I make it work! lol So, after ripping it out seven times I changed plans and worked a large square with a ribbed edge all the way around. (Flashback on the "potholders" my mother had me knitting 50 years ago!) It was my first time working with circular needles too which I have to admit I didn't like. But I have a baby gift ready for my daughter's friend who is due this summer so it's all good. Also, I managed to use up the stuff I bought instead of adding it to the stash so - double bonus!
