I went yesterday to purchase some more yarn to crochet squares for charity. Instead of paying attention to the weight of the yarn I only looked at the colours and the material it was made from. This morning I discovered that the weight was too light for most of the charities. I really liked the colour of the variegated yarn so I decided to make an afghan for my spare room with it and off set it with solid colours. Due to the weight I will only get 1 four inch square and part of a second square. Also due to the weight in order to get some warmth from the end result, I am using a number 3.5 crochet hook. It will be one of those “year long” projects.
I am pretty sure that I will need more yarn but I will need to go to a different store in the chain.
