Yarn noodles

Just before vacation started, my 8mm needle came so I cast on again with the Bernat Blanket from Yarn Canada.
I've only knit a couple Feather and Fan repeats, but oh my what a difference! It's still a tricky yarn to keep an even tension on, but it's much nicer to knit on the bigger needle. It's hard to see, but I'm already into the third colour of the stripes. It's a lighter green than the first, but only a shade.

I'm trying to put a full repeat (four rows) on this each night. Hopefully it will grow quickly. It's only a baby blanket, so it doesn't have to be too huge, but I'd like to use up all the yarn (three balls) if I can.

It is fun to knit some oddball yarn now and again. Pulls you right out of the zone...which isn't always a bad thing.

Love the feather and fan pattern! This should be a very pretty blanket whatever its size.

Needles do make all the difference. Good luck on your goal!

That is a very pretty shade of green and it looks like an interesting pattern.

I hope you've been well. I've been busy gardening and will have to get some photos up soon.

Enjoy your week,
Andrea

It's nice to have a change of pace with the knitting-every once in a while, that is.
The colors are pretty. My little guy has a crocheted blanket out of this that he hauls everywhere! (it holds up pretty well, too!)
