Mitered Square Blanket- New yarn review: Jo-Anne's Debbie Mumm "Traditions"

Will someone please tell Michigan it's fall?

Weird. Leaves are covering the grass. The early morning sky is misty. It LOOKS like Fall. But opening the door is enough to baffle your brain. Although it's cold at night.... it's 87 degrees or higher during the day!

Indian Summer? Global Warming?

Who knows. I've decided to just close the windows- turn on the air and pretend it actually IS fall.

In honor of fall- I started a new knit project. Mitered Squares blanket. From Mason-Dixon Knitting.

I'm using a surprisingly happy find from Jo Anne Etc. A new yarn line: Jo-Anne's Debbie Mumm - "Traditions" In "Adirondack." I'll be alternating squares of this color- with other fall colors- reds burgundys and another colorway in greens.

The yarn is an acrylic/wool blend. Machine washable- colors are great. Like Noro without the vegetation. Or the itch. Softer. With sheen.

Will update the review after a few balls are knit up;)

So far- Thumbs up.
