I was at a point where I didn’t want to go out shopping, but I needed to start a new afghan. I loved this color of yarn. It’s Peacock from Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn! I looked through my book until I found one I thought would look nice in this color. Soft and Feminine is no longer looking so feminine. Done in Peacock it looks nice for anyone.
This afghan is done holding two strands of yarn throughout and with a P hook. Because of this, it took two days to finish once I did go out and get more yarn. (Since I moved out of town, it’s now about a 30 mile drive to the nearest store with yarn.) For the first part of the yarn, I rolled the leftover part of my skein into two equal balls. Apparently I did a better job of matching up size than the manufacturer for I Love This Yarn! All of the skeins I purchased were labeled as 7 oz. and 355 yards. When I finished with my first skein, I started two separate skeins at the same time. When I got to the end of the first skein, here is how much I had left of the other.
Using this color gives it sort of an ocean feel with the shells. The color does look a lot like the Turqua I used on Delightful Daisies. It still has a much different look that I like!
