  1. Thanks for the responses! It's a new blanket, so it looks like I'll have to accept that there's nothing I can do at this point. I'll definitely make sure to compare the "whiteness" the next time I buy yarn.
  2. Hello! My acrylic white baby blanket looks kind of gray. I've machine washed it twice with liquid All detergent and there's no change. Is there a way to make it a brighter white? I know I shouldn't use chlorine bleach. I've read that hydrogen peroxide might work. Is that true? What about OxyClean or a bluing agent like Mrs. Stewart's? I'm running out of time to fix this before the baby shower! Help!
  3. Estimate of finished size is 36 wide by 38 tall. There's not much I can do about this one since it's over half finished, but I'll look into the extended sc stitch. Thanks for the suggestion.
  4. Hello All - I'm brand new to this forum and looking forward to learning. I've made several of these Caron ABC blankets. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/babys-abcs-afghan My problem is that there is no gauge on the pattern and my blankets come out more square than oblong. How can I fix this? I've spent quite a bit of time on internet searches with no luck. Thanks much!
