In the true spirit of this blog, I finished this blanket months ago and have finally now gotten the pictures to blog about it.
Oh my goodness is this blanket pretty!
After seeing several people making it out of white and ivory I had to make one myself. But having a blanket that is white or ivory just seems like it is begging for disaster so instead I opted for a jewel-toned gold color that manages to brighten up the room without hurting your eyes.
I used a I crochet hook, and about 10 skeins of Red Heart Super Savers in Gold.
I joined the main motifs as I went, and half way through decided to create and join the filler motifs as I went along as well. Looking back on it I wish I would have done that the entire time.
One other thing I would have done: weave in the ends as I went. Seriously- I am 90% certain that time stood still while I secured and weaved in all those darn ends. According to hubby it only took a two nights of watching tv (hello Supernatural) but since he also claims there wasn’t a “million” ends I am not sure if I want to believe him.
Marlow didn’t believe him either…
At any rate- I am loving our new afghan and it is perfect for spring and rainy weather!
And I haven’t heard any complaints from Marlow… lol!
