Wee Warmth Baby Blanket Reviewed by June on 2014-03-17 ***
First time using a Lion Brand pattern/wool, speed stix & running out of wool!! At 43 stitches I knew I was going to run out so double checked the pattern online to make sure I purchased enough. That's when I saw the reviews. Took the advice of Lindy & back tracked to 41 stitches & did 5&6 twice. Ran out of one ball in the last couple of rows. Thankfully it was the Parfait so I pulled the other end out of the ball. I agree the needles are short for 43 stitches & the holes on the edges not so good for a baby. Would adjust next time to increasing a stitch on each end instead. Happy with the results but only because of the adjustments. Sounds like Lion Brand needs to smarten up????
