I'm planning on making blankets for my young neices and nephew for Christmas. I've found a pattern that I really like, which uses 7 different colours. The pattern calls for Rowan wool/cotton (dk weight). It would cost me waaaaay too much money if I were to use this yarn (need a total of 14 skeins per blanket). I'm hoping to keep each blanket under $100. Any suggestions? I need a yarn that is offered in lots of colours. I was thinking about using Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo - would bamboo be appropriate for a baby blanket? Any thoughts are appreciated!
