This month, I'm linking up with the Math is Real Life ladies.
I'm a big crafter-especially crochet.
One of my co-workers is expecting, and I wanted to make her a blanket (I am making her a blanket!).
However, I was unsure which yarn I wanted to use/buy (I need new yarn for almost every project! ;), so I whipped up a couple of samples using different yarns and different sized hooks.
First, I measure the strips across.
*Warning-the following 2 pictures are for demonstration purposes only. Real measurements were taken with a clear ruler as students were getting ready for the bus line. ;) *
Some of the yarn was on sale-and some was not :(.
Stinks to be me, but the favorite yarn I love to use on projects like this was NOT on sale. So I went with a mix of mostly on sale yarn, with two colors of not on sale yarn that I couldn't find matches for.
I managed to get a nice rainbow mix for under $25 (with teacher discount!).
