Done in discontinued Lion Bran AlPaKa, about 12 skeins 50 grams each. Works up quickly and busts the stash.
Then I looked in my basket, shown in a prior post, and noticed that I had a lot of ugly yarn ends -- they looked fine as accents for whatever I used them for, but they were murky or boring or just butt ugly all on their own and even lumped together in a basket. So, they had to turn into something. Something masculine, given the general dark tones. So here is my mostly wool Butt Ugly Granny Square Afghan:
I am currently working on one with what seems to me to have the charm of a bulldog puppy -- a little ugly but cute, with screaming red, bowling alley gold, and a nice mocha (of which I am a couple skeins short for a sweater, but there's enough for edging each square), which might turn out comparatively presentable.
Yes, the J sized hook is getting a workout, but the stash is noticeably diminishing!
