The next blanket, #184, was supposed to be pale pink, but when it came to sorting out the yarns it turned out that there was little pink. So I added the remains of the yellow and some apricot, and the rest is neutrals - white, off white, beige, grey, sheep coloured (undyed wool) and so on. I like it. The boucle is from Blanket #172 and it adds texture. The softness comes from the angora in yellow Paton's Fuzzy-Wuzzy.
I unravelled this shawl, knitted according to a Shetland pattern. The unusual thing about it is that the centre is knitted in moss stitch - usually it is done as garter stitch. The other thing is the choice of yarn, an ordinary wool, not shetland. I thought it was 4 ply, but unravelled it was much thinner, a 2 ply. It is still very soft, and a pleasure to knit with.
