Cozy Stripe Blanket Update

My cozy stripe blanket has taken up permanent residence on the ottoman in the living room. And I may have had a few complaints that there is no where for people to put their feet because "this blanket is in the way". I'm not sure why this is a problem....after all, just look at all those gorgeous stripes...and never mind where your feet are going to go.
Much crocheting on this beauty has been happening in the last little while and I am down to the last round of color changes.

Of course after I finish crocheting all the stripes (which I have loved doing, and suspect I may miss when they are all done) I still have to darn in about a million ends (when will I learn my lesson and darn in as I go?) and then do the border, so there is still work left to do.

My favorite thing right now, especially since it has gotten cold outside, is to cuddle up under my blanket while I am working on it. No doubt, this is going to be a cuddly blanket when it is finished.

I may not be finished by Christmas, as I was hoping, but the end is in sight, and in the meantime I have many happy crocheting hours to look forward to...

  1. Hi Rachel, this blanket is coming along so beautifully! I love the same thing about making a blanket, being able to snuggle underneath as you work. It's wonderful. You're making great progress, I think you really could finish by Christmas!

    1. Thank you Jennifer. I am going to try to be done by Christmas but there is a lot to do between now and then (other than crochet) so we shall see....

    1. It is the perfect time of year to be making this blanket since the weather is getting colder. Thanks so much for reading.

  4. It is so pretty, Rachel!!! I hope I can make one like it someday. It is getting colder here so I am appreciating being able to have my blanket cover me as I work on it, too. I am cheering you on :)

    1. Thank you Jo. The greens in this blanket are some of my favorite colors, along with the blues and the orange; all in all it is a happy collection of colors.
