the pattern reads 52rows of  tan is that Beige? that should keep me busy a while lol to get 4-5 colors to start sounds about right since some are long rows. im worried about tracking the rows Ive never done so many different rows I think keeping it on the computers notepad may be best since if I write it I will lose it lol

wool is generally more so that's probably why when I priced it , it was so much I know a hat I did in wool ease was $9 just for one skein of yarn Im going get them at hobby lobby looks cheaper then paying shipping then I can get a few colors at a time I may also look at other brands I know I love this yarn is cheap and has gobs of colors if its similar to the Vanna(altho looks like the vanna is $3.33 right now ), I may work it as I can afford it as well. It took me 8 months to do a 7 foot long blanket by 4 feet wide lol so im thinking this will be about that long if I can do 3-4 colors/skiens a month im still new and have no one to teach me so im having some issues changing color I didnt understand the instructions so what I did was just take the new color and loop it thro the old color and knot it for the first stich then knit in the rest im sure its not right but its all I know to do then I tapestry needle it so it stays together. I have had luck doing it this way with hats and a blanket. my first color change my yarn kept braking and i knotted it in the middle of the yarn I learned quickly you dont do that does anyone have any advice on how to get it in a ball without knots in the yarn/without the yarn braking it seems the skiens I buy have tons of knots in the top do you roll from the middle then?
