The snow is almost gone, but the world is still a very gray and muted place. A few weeks ago, someone on Ravelry had the brilliant idea to have a yarn swap called Clown Barf to brighten up the dreariness of the late winter. My sock yarn blanket is for kiddo, so I jumped at the chance to add brights. The way the way most Blankie Mania swaps work is that 20 people contribute 20 mini skeins of yarn. The swap mom divvies them up and mails them back to us.The minis arrives yesterday and I admit i was like a kid in a yarn candy store. The blankie is slowly growing, and the colors are reassurance that the arrival of spring is more than just a date on the calendar.
