Hello, I'm back today with my Tuesday's Tallies and I have a dilemma !!! I absolutely love the Bobble Stitch blanket, that I started last week and have finished 7 colours this week but that's where I've stopped.
I'm enjoying doing the bobble stitch and love how it looks but I've just worked out how much it will cost me to finish !!!!! I will get 2 rows of bobbles from one 50g ball of yarn, which only measures 2cm, for a decent size blanket I'm looking at 170cm !!!!
So, doing the maths, I need 85 balls of Rooster yarn altogether at £4.85 which makes the blanket £412. I need to buy another 67, it's a long term project so I could spread the cost over 9-10 months, buying a few balls each month but can I justify spending that much on one blanket !!! I thought my Ripple blanket took a lot of yarn !!!
My dilemma is do I frog what I've done and make a cushion instead or carry on with the blanket, I really don't know. Help, what should I do, I'm edging more towards a cushion but would appreciate any advice.
I'll be back next Tuesday with my decision, I'm off now to check out how everyone else has got on with their One-a-Day's, over at Gingerbread Girl blog.
