I thought it was about time for another crochet along post.
I have just seen that my last one was back in January, so this is well over due!
Sorry about that! So on the off chance that anyone is still interested in this project, I will post some progress. :)
First up though, I thought you might like to see how my blanket is looking all up, I think it is getting to a reasonable size, about half way through now, and is quite a heavy piece of fabric!
...it stretches out for miles!!
Look at the lovely neat folded edge, and then the horrible, scary loose thread edge below, I think I will be using my cheats edge to deal with all those threads, don't think I could face all that darning.
...It is hard to take a picture of it all laid out, it has gotten quite large, there is a lot of wool used in this blanket already. I think my colour selection may have gone a bit off course here and there, but I guess this is such a big blanket that I might get away with it.
Are you getting on with this project? I am trying to concentrate a bit more on this blanket, but I keep finding side projects that get in the way!
So here is the new bit I have made since the last update:
After the pink and light aqua outline cluster pattern,
in mint, starting on right side, 2 rows sc (up and back), then
in light blue 1 row 4dc cluster pattern, then
in dark blue 2 rows sc (up and back), then
a section of chevron stripe in red and light pink, then
in pale blue 2 rows sc, then
a section of bobbles in green and mid blue, then
4 x 2rows of sc in pale blue, celery,red and light aqua, then
3 rows of granny stripes in flamingo, pale pink and flamingo again.
So that is where I am up to at the moment!
I have also managed (I hope) to add a linky thing to this post, so if you'd like to share a link to your mixed stitch blanket I'm sure everyone would love to visit and admire them!
Thank you to all the lovely ladies who have sent me emails with picture of your blankets, I love to see what you come up with from this crochet along! Most of you are miles ahead of me, so it gives me some incentive to get cracking with my blanket.
Have a great day, and I hope the linky thing works!
