Friday is for Crochet

But today we're not looking at the crochet, we're looking at more yarn for the crochet.  I weighed one of my skeins of yarn before I started using it on the blanket and then I weighed it after I'd finished the repeat for that color.  Each repeat takes 48 grams of yarn so I can get two repeats from each skein.  (We will not discuss the chance of any of the skeins being underweight.  No, it will be fine.)  When I measured some and did some math, I figured out that I would have a blanket that was pretty close to square.  I didn't want a square blanket, I want one that is longer than it is tall because that is how the person who is getting this blanket is built.  So I needed more yarn.  I will wash these skeins over the weekend and add them to the giant bag of yarn and work these new colors in with the others and then I will have a rectangular blanket. These are all Madelinetosh Tosh DK yarns, just like the rest of the yarn I'm using for this blanket.  From left to right in the photo, I have Max's tail, Kale, Forestry, Thicket, and Terrarium.  Why Max felt his tail should be in the shot, I don't know.

Surely, Max's tail is there for color inspiration for those Madelinetosh people. I bet that was his plan.

Do you always was your yarn before you use it?
