I cast on to make a fast & mindless little project for the store. It's a Super Easy Baby Blanket and I'm using Dream In Color Groovy, which is thicker than the yarn suggested, so it is working up at a nice clip. When I have time to knit at work I'm getting one colour block done per day (4 down, 3 to go).
I cast on 100 sts and it is about 34" wide un-stretched. I am working each colour for 32 to 34 rows (depends on how much yarn there is, some skeins seem to have a bit less yardage), which is between 5.25 & 5.5" each. To see if I have enough to work another 2 rows I measure 6 times the width of the blanket (3x per row).
