Item #75 week 5

I just started knitting with the new yarn that will make my stripe down the middle of my blanket. As I browsed the aisles of JoAnn Fabrics I was overwhelmed and excited at all the possibilities for projects made with the hundreds of kinds of yarn. My choices for this project were narrowed down some because I wanted to keep the yarn of a similar texture and I had a couple colors in mind.

That being said I ended up going with one that was inexpensive and a different color than I had originally envisioned. I am really happy with the yarn, it is a bit of a smoother texture that I was using before and so my knitting process is sped up a bit. I have seen a lot of progress in just a short amount of time.

22 inches now, goal 50!
