Off the hook: yellow baby blanket

In addition to knitting yarns I have a stash of yarn primarily for weaving projects. I'm looking at these now to see if any can be used in knitting projects. Here is a small baby blanket that I crocheted in double crochet with a simple added edging. The yarn is a cotton/acetate blend and the label says the color is "Sweet Corn." The yarn is a thin core of yellow with little twists in white thread. Because the fiber is so thin, I used 5 strands to make the equivalent of DK weight yarn.

Still lots left of this yarn! Maybe it's time to offer some of the weaving yarn stash to other crafters.
