They are really nice Lyndsay :thumbsup: @girlinleeds

I got all excited as a van arrived as I was taking Louis to school but it was some car parts for dh - so not my wook and not exciting :doh: :giggle: May arrive later with the other van or the post lady though so not given up hope for today!

I'll take it outside into better light later. Slight stuff up as the 'turquiose' in the Love you #5 is the same colour as the 'dark turquiose' in the Paris :doh: so now down a blue (but only a tiny one) I'm sure I'll need a few more balls so no biggy!

:shock: :shock: wow my guestamite was so spot on :shock: :shock: I just weighed my square and it is 58 grams so I rounded up to 70 as there will probably be another row and some of the squares have 3d stuff going on. My total yarn ordered weighed 1750g (35 50gm balls) so that equals 25 squares :shock: how cool is that! I may of course run out of certain colours but at least I know I'm ball park and thought it would help anyone else ordering who wants to do a 24 square blanket!

Pips seems to have talked me into making her a smaller blanket using wool that are in my wool boxes, so looks like I'll be making lots of squares

@JabberJabber I know you are umming and ahhing and havne't got your yarn yet but I was thinking of you and I think you should go acrylic or cotton / acrylic mix as it is really hard work with cotton as the strands are a nightmare on tricky stitches. I do love how it is turning out but I think it would be a bit easier in acrylic!
