Hello. Life has been so busy recently, I'm afraid to say I have let my blogging slip, there has just not been enough hours in the day to find inspiration and take photos for posts. I am busy doing interesting things that I will tell you about soon, just got to find the time to put a few posts together!
Anyway, today I thought it was time for an update on the mixed stripe crochet along blanket, I had a look and the last update was way back in April! Yikes! This year has kind of slipped away from me, so I apologise for the lack of posts about this project, I have been distracted up other crochet fun along the way. On the other hand, I have seen lots of great mixed stripy blankets being completed on Ravelry, so obviously you are taking this pattern and running with it yourselves. And I've even seen another crochet along inspired by my blanket and she is much more organised than me! I'm glad you are not necessarily waiting for my updates to forge ahead, it could be a bit frustrating for you if you are!
So now I am going to make a concerted effort to finish this blanket!
Heres what I have added this week:
After the pink granny stripe and 2 rows of sc in red (start 1st row on front then turn and do 2nd row going back),
Next: 2 rows sc in green,
Next: Catherine Wheel section in sky blue and dark blue (see earlier post for details on Catherine wheel stitch),
Next: 2 rows sc in green again. (10 sc in each repeat of the catherine wheel pattern to keep the same stitch count in the rows)
Then I did a section of sc stripes, with 2 rows of sc in the following colours:
Then I did a row of 4 dc clusters, with 3 stitches between each cluster. (Start this row with 2 dc, miss 3sts the 4dc in next st and so on)
Next, 1 row of sc across top of cluster row, with every 4th stitch going into the gap between clusters.
So that is where I'm up to at the moment, hoping very much to have another update next week, this is going to be my main project for a while, to try and get it finished!
Have a great day, and happy hooking!
