mixing yarns
hey i just have a quick question...i recently purchased some pink wool yarn for a baby blanket that i'm going to be making soon, but then i realized that i didnt have enough so i started looking for some pretty yarn to match. much to my dismay i cant find any wool yarn that i like, so im wondering if it would be ok to mix a different sort of yarn with the wool. im currently looking at some really pretty chenile yarn but i dont know if it will turn out ok. if i can mix other yarns with wool, whats the best kind? any suggestions would be sooo helpful! thanks!

You can mix yarns, but just make sure than any washing is done to accommodate the most delicate of the yarns.
