Anyway, ever since I found the Vivid blanket by Tincanknits I've wanted to knit it up. I even started on it about two years ago, but the yarn I'd found was all wrong for it, so I frogged it after just one square.
Then last year I discovered Järbo Mio - lovely soft 100% merino yarn in 14 different colours with amazing stitch definition. I'd been thinking for awhile that I'd love to turn it into a blanket, but it would be quite an investment, so I'd been putting it off. However, realizing that I was still thinking about it, I reasoned that it could no longer be considered an impromptu purchase prone to buyers remorse, so last Friday I went out and bought 10 skeins! :) (I left out white, grey, black and baby pink as I didn't think they fit with the rest of the colours)
So that was an awesome start to the weekend :) The Vivid squares are turning out absolutely gorgeous and I was right about the perfect stitch definitions.
