I finally started the Zig Zag Baby Blanket, you may remember I bought the yarn back in September. I had originally planned to knit the Zig & Zag Blanket and bought the yarn accordingly, planning to substitute the 4 ply for DK. I then came across the Zig Zag Baby Blanket and decided to knit this one for a change. What I didn't check was the quantities of yarn, this pattern is designed to be done in aran/worsted weight so I knew I would have to adjust to get the measurements I wanted.

So yesterday morning I got on the net and went to Sconch Textiles, where I had bought the original yarn and put an order in for another 9 balls. I'm very pleased to say the parcel was on my doorstep this afternoon, how is that for a prompt service?
I wasn't too sure about the colour combo when I started but as the blanket is growing, it is growing on me. I still have red, natural and pistachio to go before I start repeating.
Let me know what you think of it, and let me know if you too have ever underestimated yarn for a pattern.
