Oh and I did Rémy's gorgeous random stripe blanket with a cotton acrylic mix and I think it is awesome for blankets, washes and keeps it's shape so well.

:hohoho:
I spent a little while last night trying to read through the threads! :giggle:
So I m confused, I suppose I just need to pick one type of yarn and stick to it for all squares right? I have lots of DK wool. I do like cottons and have some of the drops cottons so maybe I ll start with those.

Go on Nicola just start with some drops (is it the aran weight?) and you can get more later :whip: @confusinglady

Mind didn't arrive yesterday and it is stupid no mail Sunday today :hohoho: :fingerscrossed: for tomorrow!

Do you need it for your first square? Have you done a photo yet of your yarns @girlinleeds :whip: (or have I missed it :lookround: :giggle: )

I was just reading and the lady on LookatwhatImade said she used 5100 metres (squares only not including joining / borders) so I just worked out what I have with my 35 balls I have 2625m which should be about right for my 1/2 sized blanket and I can just order what I decide later for joining! I thought I'd say for anyone else working it out. I'll use more than her as I'm using bigger yarn and hook but I'm at least ballpark!
