Here are the second set of squares I made in the Blogger Blanket Project. These ones are for Becky who blogs over at the adorable Strumpets Crumpets. Her dog Mickey has to be the cutest and fluffiest little pooch I've ever seen! Plus all the granny circles she is making are absolutely gorgeous, the colors are to die for!! (I now need to learn to make granny circles!)
While rooting through my stash, I found that I have a lot of green yarn (I also have a ton of green embroidery floss too, coincidence?) I'm definitely drawn to the color, especially Kelly Green. It's in my top 3 favorite colors actually. I hope she likes this combo with the dusty/olivey green and white.

Question: Have any of you noticed that the lighter the color a yarn is, the thinner it is?! All 3 of these yarns are Vanna Choice. The two greens are the same consistency but the white is sooo much thinner, I don't get it at all! Does the dye make yarn thicker or something? From holding the dye? What is it all about?!

Anyways...here they are...

How'd you like that extreme close up of them?! Have a crafty day kids!

Yes, now that you mention it, I have noticed that too with the Red Heart yarn, that the lighter colors seem thinner. I don't know the reason for it though.
Beautiful grannies!

Those are amazing! I'm already loving layiong mine out on my bed and pretending that it is a blanket...soon though! and I cannot wait to see everyone's. I LOVE Vannas greens and mustard yarns-they are so lovely and while I enver used her white I like the way the others work up.

Well I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who noticed the lighter yarns being thin!

I love the greens and yellows too. The last set I just sent (not posted yet) have a lot of the Vanna mustard yellow!
