WIP update TOAST inspired, not-granny-square, grey blanket

 Many months ago I showed you this crochet blanket that I'm making for a friend. It's nearly finished, It's been nearly finished for ages and ages because I've run out of yarn. I've also discovered that I'm using a discontinued yarn and that nowhere sells it on the internet for any cheap price, not even ebay. I'm in a bit of a quandary. I do have some more yarn of this type but in different colours, so I could maybe make the last square in a different colour or even striped and just hope for the best, or I managed to buy some yarn that is exactly the same shade and I think of a similar fibre but not as chunky, maybe I could use that


 If anyone happens to have a spare ball or two of Patons Silenzio Chunky in light grey laying around somewhere and is up for selling it to me, it'd be really, really great!


  1. This is cool. Where are you planning to use this?

  2. How annoying! I hope you manage to find a ball somewhere becuase the blanket is really lovely. I like single colour crochet and for a long time have wanted to make a huge single colour throw or blanket, but never decided on which colour or pattern. That soft grey you've chosen is beautiful. x

  3. Are you on Ravelry, the networking site for knitters and crocheters? There are opportunities there to find people willing to sell or gift yarn as well as advice, support, chat etc. Some forums are a bit cliquey and one mustn't disagree with them but on the whole Ravelry is a very useful too.
