Ixing-nay the Lanket-bay

I hate how this baby blanket looks so far.

I thought working diagonally would be interesting with the self-striping yarn. But alas, the striping hasn't gotten any better as the blanket has gotten bigger.

I used an F hook instead of a G so the blanket feels too stiff, not cuddly at all.

So it's getting frogged and put into a ball for some project in the future. :P

Maybe if you held two strands of it together it would change the striping?

Or, you could alternate using yarn from the other end of the ball every two rows...

Or you can just rip it out. Yeah, rip it. RIP IT GOOD!

Ha! I love the Men at Work reference.

Yeah, this project is dead. But I will keep in mind the idea to use two strands held together...good idea!
