As I mentioned before, I'll be doing the Sunny Spread for my parents' Christmas gift. I found some Caron Simply Soft in my hidden and long forgotten stash and plan on making a little trip around town this evening looking for a matching color (thank goodness for no dye lot acrylics). I'm really surprised with how soft this yarn actually is. And the best part: a 7 ounce skein yields 366 yards.
I've done some measuring and calculating and have figured that I need at least 81 squares to cover a queen sized bed. So far I've finished two. It looks like I'll be at this for a while.
