5 new colours of Cascade 220!

…and the rest of the gang (minus one other shelves that houses all the neutrals – I just couldn’t fit it all in).
The Cascade has arrived just in time for the Crochet Blanket Class that is starting on March 21.  It is so wonderful when there are so may colours to choose from for this blanket.  With any luck we will get the Berroco Ultra Alpaca in before the class.  This yarn is the same weight as the Cascade 220 and can be mixed and matched.  The colour combination potential is enough to blow gaskets.

This pretty example of the Crochet Blanket is by Iwona.  She used some little bits and pieces of worsted weight yarn that she had collected and saved.  Many of them are remnants of Cascade 220.  The white borders give this blanket a fresh as a daisy glow.  Wouldn’t this make a wonderful baby blanket?

This blanket was brought to you by the magic of Noro yarns and Maurie Todd (the auteur).  Noro sock weight yarn which is wash friendly was used for the starry centres in this blanket.  Because Noro changes colour  (a self striping yarn) the middles come out all the colours of the rainbow.  No fuss- no muss!  The borders were created with a deep colour of Smooshy yarn by Dream in Colour called Gothic Rose.  Smooshy is a sock yarn and so it is also quite washable.
