Fuzzy Blue Blankie

I was excited by how quickly I crocheted the yellow granny square baby blanket, so I dug into my bins and came up with Patons "Be Mine" (Discontinued).  This is the softest, dreamiest yarn you can imagine.  A combination of a subtle eyelash/faux fur and a velvety chenille.  I caught every kid snuggling with it on the couch while I worked on it. 

I would have liked to use up all the yarn I had, but it gets to a point where one ball doesn't go very far, so I stopped at the end of a round, with only a few feet left of that ball!  I'm not sure what I'll do with the rest; it might make a nice baby sweater--I'll have to weigh what's left.

Yarn In:  12 574gr
Yarn Out:  231gr + 10 714gr= 10 945gr
Yarn Balance:  1629 gr more In than Out
Costs:  $287.71/168 days = $1.71/day

Beautiful blanket Tracy - looks like it is "marshmallow soft". No wonder the kids wanted to snuggle in it when you were crocheting it.

Thanks! I have the second photo as my laptop backdrop and everytime I see it I want to pet it!
