Decisions, decisions .............

Today has been a play day. Having decided to discard my half made Wool-Eater blanket because I can't find the rest of the wool to finish it, I thought I'd start another but couldn't decide whether to make it in acrylic or wool. So, I grabbed some scrap yarn and these are my two samples ..

Same samples - different views. The green and yellow one is done in Bendigo Woolen Mills Classic 8ply and the red and lemon one in 8ply acrylic - used a 4.50mm hook for both. Still haven't made up my mind as to which I prefer but isn't it interesting how the acrylic one is bigger than the wool sample? One thing is for sure though and that is this pattern sure lives up to its name - wow what a wool-eater !!!

Anyway, having said all of that, I figured I really ought to do a final search for the aforementioned 'lost' wool and in doing so I came across a half finished ripple afghan AND the spare yarn to finish it .... sooooo I guess it would be sensible to finish this one before embarking on a wool-eater. Also found a nice cream scarf done in tunisian simple stitch that only needs the ends finished off so that will be tonights job.
