I did it - I reached the half way point of my cozy stripe blanket.
I am really enjoying this blanket journey. I have the pattern completely figured out (no more mistakes resulting in a lot of ripping out) and I love seeing which color comes next. It is the perfect project for the way my days are at the moment - a simple pattern with immediate happy results that is easy to pick up, work on, and then put down. I try to spend a little time in the late afternoon (after I am home from work and the school run) crocheting a row or two until it is time to put down my hook and start dinner. After dinner, so long as I am not too tired, I pick up my hook again and crochet a few more rows. A little at a time, a little everyday, and before I know it I will have a beautiful cozy stripe blanket.
So are you ready to see what my blanket looks like half way done?
Well, without further ado, here is it.
Oh my goodness, I love it. I actually squealed when I saw it all laid out in its splendor on the living room floor for this picture. I mean, I knew what it was going to look like - I've seen it over at Attic 24
- but there is something thrilling and incredibly satisfying to look at something as gorgeous as this and know that I made it. This is such a happy project and I am really enjoying working on it.
Of course I should probably darn in some of these ends or I am going to have quite the job on my hands when all the stripes are crocheted.
