I love the colours and the texture of the next blanket, #170, murky with browns, greys, mauves and muted blues. The only brighter irregular yarn is the shawl yarn from #167 that I felt inclined to add. There is some angora yarn to add a hazy soft feel. The texture looks good too and I think it is because all the yarn are of a similar weight, with few thicker or thinner. I would like all my blankets to end up in these colours - there is a long way to go (ie a lot of brighter yarns to be knitted) before I get there.
I unravelled this lovely cardigan. It is nicely knitted with front and sleeve cables and shiny gold buttons. I can't work out what fibre it is. It is heavy and slinky and nice. I thought silk or silk blend or perhaps bamboo. It was very easy to unravel. In the end I decided the colour was wrong for this blanket, so it will end up in one with more brighter greens.
