        Hello

        i am really enjoying this first episode and am going to try to use this season of JST online guild to be more adventurous and use up what I have…mostly.

        i am going to use the limited supply of 4/8 cotton colours that I have to make a baby blanket with the hope of experimenting with sett to eventually make a larger blanket as a wedding gift.

        now my thought is a windowpane idea 4/8 (12 epi) warp but for the contrasting colours I would use 2 strands of 2/8 in place of the 1 strand of 4/8.  Seems like a no brainer…..should work? Right?

        Thanks in advance for any thoughts…Diana

          Hi Diana,

          Yes, using 2 strands of 2/8 together will give you the 4/8 you need.
