    Chemo blankets

    Thank you for your kind words! Sometimes it takes me a little longer to get them finished than other times but I'm not giving up. They enjoy them too much! Thank you again for your kind words!

    Chemo blankets

    Thank you! I just enjoy making these for people that I know can use them and will appreciate them and it seemed like these people did the time I took a load to them and handed them out.

    Chemo blankets

    Thank you! Before I found this yarn, I was using solids and variegated and I enjoyed using it plus they really loved them. Then I found this and I'm hooked on it. I enjoy using this so much. It will be interesting to see how they react when I give them this. I just started using this around the first of this year so I haven't taken any of these to them yet. It will be fun to give them away.

    Chemo blankets

    I know what you mean! When I first ordered it, it was going to be "trial and error" which I was expecting more error than trial. But, the joke was on me. I couldn't believe how it was working out! When I showed it to my daughter the first time, she thought I was changing colors that often. I told her no, I wasn't and that it was the yarn. That's when I pulled it out to show her. Like me, she was amazed! I just couldn't take the credit for something the company is doing.

    Chemo blankets

    I haven't really counted the shades. All I do is crochet using the ripple pattern. This is a yarn made by Red Heart called Ombre. When I first saw it, I thought there is no way that will work but I ordered just to try it. I couldn't believe how it works. All I do is crochet and then match the color to another skein when the one I'm using runs out. When a skein ends, I do make sure that I'm matching if the skein I'm finishing is getting lighter or darker to the new skein I'm about to start. I don't want it to be getting lighter and then I start on the end that is getting darker already. After you do this, all you have to do is crochet and it does the rest. It is so much fun!

    Chemo blankets

    Thank you! My blankets are about 32 x 56. I try to make them so most people can cover up good. My husband took chemo and he complained also of how cold it always was in that room and he was right. I went with him one day and got so cold. They gave the patients what they called "blankets" to cover up with but they were not warm enough according to most of them. This is what gave me the idea to make them and help them out.

    Chemo blankets

    Thank you everyone! Your comments have made me feel so good! I really do appreciate it. I would like to share with you the first time I took the chemo blankets to the patients and gave them one. The looks on their faces and the hugs I received were so wonderful! They didn't have to say a word! Their faces said it for them! They were all so sweet to me!!!! I was so overcome with joy and it was all worthwhile!!!! When I left there, I went to the store and purchased more yarn and started making more to give to them.
  14. Thank you. I never did find out what the "discontinued" review was actually about but since it wasn't all of it, it doesn't matter. That's what I was afraid of because I enjoy using this type better than any I have used and I didn't want to give it up. Thanks again for your help and time!
