Is anybody working on a temperature blanket?

 

I have my temps recorded so far, but haven't started. I honestly have NO clue on what pattern to use. I thought I wanted a round ripple, but I think I'd like to be able to use it on my bed, and a round one would end up HUGE I'm afraid.

+1 Finished off a skein and it wasn't enough to finish the doll blankie so I had to open another skein.  Wasn't worth rolling it as I only had a short end to finish off on the blankie.  However, I have one doll blankie done for the donation!!!!

+2 Finished off one ball and rolled the next skein to avoid tangles.  This system is helping me avoid the big yarn tangles that have been holding me up.

+1 Hope I'm learning my lesson.  Rolled a skein into a ball for yarn that I'm constantly untangling when I don't.  This needs to become a habit.

+1 Had to roll a project into a ball after reading the directions incorrectly.  Hope to finish it off after making it correctly.

I managed to avoid temptation at the yarn shop the other night, when I went there for Open knitting and crocheting night!  I used up a skein on my Uptown Throw this week, so:

Out of town so I'm back on the tablet tonight... I had started off really well using up yarn on the Nana ghan (2 skeins +4) and then Sister and I went to a home goods consignment sale. I figured I was in the clear, but apparently "home goods" included yarn... I found 2 bags (2 skeins each) of Vanna's Choice for $4/bag and because it was the end of the sale they were 25% off. Obviously they came home with me. 4 skeins -8.

+2 finished off two balls of my friend's yarn working on Easter basket for doll donation.  Had to use two strains of yarn at a time so got rid of two small balls left over.

Hey ladies, I didn't forget about the stashbusting, but as I told greyhoundgrandma it will be hit or miss with me for a while, as my mother-in-law has terminal cancer and is on hospice.  Thankfully this week I managed to get some crafting done, which was a much need relaxation.  Below is a picture, only the border is crocheted, but it is a pattern my cousin wanted, sorry I didn't block it.  Took 1 skein of pound of love  so I'm at WTD+2
