This is an epic de-stashing blanket. I'm not buying any yarn for a while. Haven't for months now. (Amazing!) I made this for a friend's baby using a zillion skeins of left-overs and other extras. 3 balls of Rowan Denim in medium blue, 1 in dark. 1 of every color of Knit Picks Shine Sport, lots of little left overs, and 1 ball of Melody in the middle. This blanket weighs several pounds. It's pretty warm!
