Nine colors of Berroco Ultra Alpaca make up this blanket. Wish I could share the number of skeins used in the piece with you, but with the numerous trips to my LYS for more yarn, I just lost count of the skeins purchased. But, I can share my color selections of 6204-Taupe, 6203-camel, 6279-Dark Brown Heather, 6246-Dark Turquoise, 6294-Light taupe, 6293-Wine & Brown Heather, 6201-White,6208-Off White and 6289- Grey.
The enjoyment of this knit has resulted in the beginning of yet a second large blanket, The Barn Raising Blanket from the book, Knitalong. This blanket will be knit in colors of the rainbow using stash sock yarns. My first 7" x 7" square knit in shades of red and orange has been completed and was too much fun....this should make for a colorful and happy 2010! Can't wait to share pics of this project real soon.
