This is what I was swatching for.
I can't keep up with the breakneck speed at January One, but I am cranking them out in my own way.
It's to be a baby blanket, just four squares of four mitres each, plus a nice deep border.
Per Kay, I'm using the no-sew method.
Per Alice, I've made a checklist. And a diagram.
Per AmberCake, I am using all navy (faux indigo), all the time as one color, and at least three yarns for the bright stripes in every square.
My main yarns are:
-Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim Aran: Navy blue main color (discontinued)
-Araucania Patagonia Nature Cotton: Vareigated thick-and-thin cotton - this stuff is really really awesome
My accent colors are brought in with:
-Reynold's Saucy: nice mercerized cotton solids - these are most of the brightest colors
-Rowan Handknitting Cotton
-Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton
-Manos del Uruguay Cotton
I'm actually a little surprised that I'm counting only seven yarns there. If you count all the colors of all the yarns, it's from at least 15, I think. Just because I Am That Way About The Yarn Colors. And Textures.
