a second square
Here's the second blanket square. Once washed and blocked the yarn really softens, leaving the square with little stiffness and substance. And leaving me less convinced that this wool is suitable. Typically I knit blankets with worsted weight yarn, but for these little squares I chose to double strand a 4ply fingering weight yarn. I'm worried now that these are too flimsy to be combined in a blanket with sturdier squares. Hmmm. Better think on this a bit. Maybe try a square in worsted weight and see how it compares?
