The next blanket, #203, is another dark one, in black, navy, brown, grey. After my decision to stop buying yarn I decided to use yarn store yarns for my standard blankets. There is no need to hoard them anymore; now the objective is to use everything.
I go through my spreadsheet chronologically, and add multiples of balls of yarn to the blankets. I have another pile of odd balls to supplement, and now I include aran weight and anything that doesn't seem too thick. This time I added hanks of Rowan aran Magpie, in this case dark navy, 25 gr hanks of Rowan DK and black Rowan 4 ply botany wool. These have all been in the yarn store for many years, and it feels good to see them disappear.
The garment I unravelled is a navy cotton Cos cardigan. It is huge and heavy, nearly 1 kg in weight. It is my size but far too large and heavy to wear. It looks reasonable in the picture. I like the yarn, a smooth cotton that is easy to knit.
