I don't often make blankets in the summer, preferring to work on smaller projects like toys, but I have finally fallen in love with the blanket that I started back in March, so as long as it does not get too hot to work on, I'm charging ahead, in full on blanket making mode.
Cedar River Blanket. Unfortunately my squares were not working out, and after several attempts to get the tension correct, using different hook sizes, I became incredibly frustrated and just let the whole thing lie in a basket for a while. I then decided to scrap the whole Cedar River Blanket idea and pick a much simpler design. I settled on a diamond stitch and got to work. After a few rows I was still not loving the outcome so my project sat untouched for another month or so....
But then last week, while I was on vacation, the weather was absolutely gorgeous one afternoon, so I made myself a cup of tea, sat on the deck, and worked on my blanket in the sunshine for two whole hours. It was lovely, and at the end of the afternoon, I finally loved what my blanket was becoming.
