Last week Saturday, my cousin Joy texted me a photo of a blanket she was crocheting. She thought she’d screwed up the pattern and wanted to know if her blanket could be fixed. It looked salvageable to me. I texted her back to give some encouragement. I also was curious to see the original pattern. She sent me the link to check it out. It was called the As-We-Go Stripey Blanket and once I saw the original post and photos of the completed blanket, I wanted to try my hand at crocheting one for myself.
Even though I was in the middle of about five different WIPs, I had to start this new afghan right away. On Sunday afternoon, I’d completed this much:
And by the end of the week, I’d gotten this far:
I’m using the Attic 24 Sunny Color pack because I started this project in Ventura, and that’s the only yarn I had with me. It’s been fun to follow the crochet-along instructions, but to be honest, I am not happy with the pairing of this particular pattern with this particular color palette. At this point, though, I’ve put in too much time and color changes to start unraveling the whole thing.
I guess I’ll just have to finish it and start a new one using a different color palette.
