I’ve finished my little catch up with the Stars blanket and have now got 36 squares for each blanket. Only 12 squares left to do for each now.
This one came out beautifully in the purple. I think the bobbles show up really well.
This is a gorgeous colour and I loved doing that stitch again.
Before, I’d abandoned the Rain blanket as I’d been struggling with getting the gauge right on week nine. This time I had no problems at all. I used the suggested hook size and it came out perfectly first time. I’ve no idea what the problem was last time, but these worked up so nicely and perfectly to gauge that I haven’t even blocked them.
Week 10 is the latest one to give me problems. I started the first square and did about five rows. By this point I was really not enjoying myself. I can do the stitch, but I don’t want to. It’s fiddly and very time-consuming. I’m going to find a substitute and do that instead. It’s a shame not to do the pattern exactly how it was designed but I crochet for pleasure and relaxation. I like a challenge but not if it isn’t fun.
I do need to get a crack on with this one now, if I can do so without aggravating my thumb too much, as I’ve just signed up for another CAL. I couldn’t help myself. It’s so pretty! I’ll get some photos of the yarn and the design for my next post so you can see just why it has to be done 😉
