These are the last two ends to be darned and then the Bright Stripy Blanket is finished. It’s always a good feeling isn’t it?
The expected girl turned out to be a boy, rather to the initial shock of my friend, so this is a fairly pink blanket. Rather than the planned lime border I’ve finished it in petrol; to emphasise the blue stripes.
What are you up to at the moment?
One lucky little boy I’d say – having all these colors in his blanket!
Satisfaction! No ends = endless? xxx
Well now it’s back to the other blanket’s ends. One day I will crochet again!
Better make sure you’ve charged your hook….nothing worse than a flat battery when you suddenly get the urge
💞! I like how when thou did the border, the other yarn doesn’t show. I think it’s because you did hooked in each section twice? The girls and I have come back from a heart exercising jaunt in the neighborhood; they scootered and I walked and jogged. Just had a green smoothie to recharge.
The yarn from the edge rows you mean?
Yes. When I would crochet a border, it’d seem a bit sloppy because you could see the main blanket’s colors. I noticed you hook twice in each spot which looks bolder and covers the other yarn.
It’s more so the stitches aren’t stretched with too few spread too far apart. But thanks for the compliment
I wanted a girl.. got a girl.. wanted a boy.. got a boy.. wanted a girl.. got a boy. But he’s been the sweetest of all the kids, so I am happy with him. Just keeping cool here, it’s almost 100 f. here! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
Stunning blanket – Love the colours x Sam 😃
I inherited my Grandmother’s stripey crochet blanket which covered my bed when I stayed with her. After she died my Mother used it to wrap each of my three baby brothers then I used it to wrap each of my sons.
