I am happy to report that I have finally finished this mini Afghan. I used three different yarns. I used the Queensland wool and cotton blend that was 1500 yards and came in four colors in one cake. Then, I used a mohair and silk blend from Orion fiber arts from New York and then when I ran out of that I used Rowan kidsilk haze. Therefore this turned out to be a huge mishmash of similar colors but it is incredibly soft and will be great to have around on cold winter evenings. I would never use the Queensland cotton blend again because it constantly bunched up and was difficult to work with especially when you are trying to crochet with two strands together.
