Cozy Stripe Blanket Update

My cozy stripe blanket has taken up permanent residence on the corner of the couch. I am back to working on it diligently after a bit of a slow down, and it is coming along quite nicely. As you can see it is very large....
and it will get larger still. There are many more rows to do (58) which means that when all is said and done, this blanket will be huge, perfect for cuddling up under.

Working up these stripes is so much fun, so long as I pay attention and don't miss stitches and then need to rip out several rows to correct my mistake.
The order of the colors still enchants me; colors that I would never consider putting beside each other, look incredible, making this blanket is an education in color.

Could I have this blanket finished by the end of the year? I hope so. It is a far way off, but there is a lot happening between now and then, so I feel this is a realistic goal. Yes, I'll work towards is helpful to have a sort of end date in mind. 

In related crochet news, I was searching through my blog photos the other day, and was shocked to realize that I have not posted a completed crochet project once this entire year. Sure, I have been working on this blanket, but I can not believe that I have not made anything else in all this time. I'm thinking that summer will be the perfect time to remedy this; I can't take my blanket camping or on road trips (it is too big) so it is the perfect time for a smaller project. In fact, I just put the finishing touches on a little decoration I showed you a sneak peek of here and a proper ta-dah post is coming soon for that. 


  1. Your blanket is so pretty and a riot of gorgeous vibrant colours. Are you following a set order for the colours or just adding as you go along?

    1. I'm following the color order given in the pattern, and am learning a lot about combining fun!!!!!
