Most of this yarn is Rico Creative Cotton. Some of it is Debbie Bliss cotton.
The Rico yarn is much cheaper then the Debbie Bliss. It is also of poorer quality. It splits easily.
It isn't awful by any means and I suppose it's a good example of 'you get what you pay for'.
I bought it from here. I'm not sure I'd use this particular supplier again, a wait of three months for goods I had paid for and several ignored emails has left me feeling a bit cheesed off.
The yarn on the left is Rico Creative Cotton and the one on the right is Debbie Bliss.
See how the twist of the Debbie Bliss is tighter and the strands thicker.

The colours are vibrant and it works up well enough if you can stand the splitting.
This time I have been inspired not by paintings but by a cookbook cover.
I haven't abandoned my Ravilious blanket we're just on a break.
I love making granny squares, so quick and manageable.
here I'm using three colours in a four round square. First and last rounds are the same colour.
Did you know there was a special beer for crocheters?
It would be rude not to try it.
