Knitting Notes

Pattern: Vivid by tincanknits
Yarn: Valley Yarns Huntington in the Harvest Orange, Bluestone, Mustard, Red, Blue and Sunset colorways
Needles:  Size 5 DPNs

My gift for baby B (due in about a month) is done!  I really enjoyed this pattern- working in squares ending up being the perfect thing for this summer, since it was so darn hot!   I can't imagine I would have enjoyed working on a full blanket in those conditions.

I'm also happy to report I now completely have the pinhole cast on down, because if doing that 36 times doesn't do that, nothing will.    I wouldn't have minded being able to get five squares out of each color, but there wasn't enough yarn.   Fortunately, blocking seems to have solved what initially looked like it would be too small.

The yarn is great - good workhorse, nice colors.   I would definitely consider it again for projects where a variety of color selection was important.
