I’m definitely on a roll this year. I was determined to make this the year of finishing things and so far I’m chuffed with my progress. This is the third crochet blanket to be finished.
Ok, so it didn’t turn out quite as planned but it’ll do.
This started off as a temperature blanket and would have had two more rounds to take it from Jan 1st to about mid November. I realised after a while that it was going to be too big, both for using and for the washing machine so took the decision to end it early.
When I’d finished it, I realised it looked not quite right. When I checked, three of the sides have the correct 9 hexies, one has ten and two have eight. Hmmm, no idea how that happened but if I do a hexie blanket again, I’ll make sure to keep an eye on that.
I loved doing join-as-you-go. It was so much quicker than having lots of pieces to sew together at the end and it encouraged me to sew in the ends as I went. It’s quite a sturdy join, considering how few places it’s attached and I like how it looks.I’ve only just got started on the new Arizona blanket, as I’ve been busy with other things, but hopefully I’ll have an update on that soon.
