I finally got around to do these yoyos. I started them (not these ones specifically) last year from a thread I got on the CAL... never did get any further than making one or two of them from this ugly blue I had...
After I finished my Sudoku afghan, I had a lot of left overs of the same weight yarn, so I decided to do the yoyos again last month. I just got inspired all of a sudden.
I made a whole bunch, then decided that I was going to make a baby blanket out of yoyos for my cousin's new baby girl. So I went on a stash dive for pinks and baby and girl inspired colors... these colors were the best ones I could come up with.
one month later... but really only like 8 days worth of work... It took about 5 days ranging from 2-4 hours a night assembling. this includes weaving in the ends and actually assembling the yoyos together.
Before that, like 3 days of making the yoyos from about also 2-4 hours a day. the days making them were continuous, but the lapse in between was why it took so long. I took a break, and well didn't feel like weaving in the ends.
Now the specifics.
Hook: H hook
Yarn: Various DK, and Worsted. It's mostly worsted, but some DK got thrown in. Including, Ambrosia from knitpicks, wool-ease, and some other random ones that were scraps, which I don't remember. The white border is one full ball of SWS in the snow color. I had enough left over of the SWS to make one yoyo for another yoyo project.
Measures: 10 rows of 15 yoyos each (43" x 24") (it's really not wide enough on one end for a baby blanket... but oh wells, my cousin can wear it like a shawl... like this!)
although it's holey, it's still warm... odd huh?
