MC 1 1/2 Skeins, A 1 Skein, B 2 Skein (minus the one 4" square made in clue 1), C 1 Skein, D 3/4 Skein
Did you make 4 octagons with color A in Clue #2?
And 4 octagons with color C in Clue #3?
Those clues should have used up quite a bit of the two skeins of each color.
You will need enough of MC to make 2 more octagons, some seaming, and part of the border after this clue.
Yes I did make the correct number of Octagons in both clue 2 & 3 and they are all the correct gauge. I know I have a really tight tension, but GEESESH! To have that much left over...really?! As long as I don't have to buy more yarn I won't be as upset. I can always use the leftovers in an ugly quilt or ugly snuggie or something like that. I just have such a HUGE stash pile I have been trying really hard not to buy more yarn than necessary for my current projects. I am working like a mad woman to get through my stash cause my husband says I can' t buy more yarn until it is at least 1/2 gone and this makes me really sad! Not buying yarn is like trying to not breathe! I had to BEG to be able to do this project! Thank goodness for being pregnant and having a reason to make a brand new blankie from new yarn!
