Puff Ball Blanket

Two years ago in November, I saw several skeins of pink Bernat Puff Ball yarn on clearance at for $1.19 per 3.5 oz skein.  I am a breast cancer survivor, so I was interested in seeing that some of the money from the purchase of these skeins would go toward  Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  I purchased four skeins, put it in my yarn stash when I got home, and promptly forgot about it.  Every time I would see it since, I would think that I needed to figure out what I would do with it.  Finally, I decided to make a baby blanket with it last night.

I started to crochet a scarf with it first, but realized that would only use one skein, so I decided to knit a baby blanket instead.  I am knitting a smaller version of the blanket from Bernat's Peppermint Stripe Blanket pattern in just the pink, so it will be without stripes.  It took me about three tries to get the hang of it, but now it is going along fairly smoothly.  I hope it is not too bright.  I know it is nice and soft.

Look on my Sharing Page to see where I am linking up.

Bright is lovely for babies. I however think I would find those bobbles a bit annoying to knit with. Good luck.

I have used this type of yarn to make scarves in the much easier to knit it than crochet. It comes out super soft and pretty. Love the idea of using it for a baby blanket.
