Why on earth didn’t I think of this before?

I’m 12 inches into a stashbuster blanket that’s going to be roughly 4’6” x 6 feet, in 3 x 24 inch sections. Circular needle, one GS row each DK colour, ends made into tassels.

I was about 8 inches in when I wondered (given the size of my multicoloured stash) why on earth I hadn’t thought of a fatter needle with 2 strands of DK. Fewer stitches, quicker to make, and it’d be thicker and warmer - a definite consideration since it’ll be going to a charity that dishes them out to people in need.

I can be notoriously thick when it comes to practical matters! 🙁
Still, press on with the current one - here are the bunched-up 12 inches so far.

Wowee, your words might as well be in Swahili for all they mean to me but the blanket is stunning.
