Yes, I am pleased to announce that I am TWO THIRDS of the way through my 84 stripes of double crochet!!
I am using 7 different colours of Patons 100% cotton DK, each separated by stripes of limestone so that makes 14 stripes, which when double crocheted using a 3.5 hook measures about 12 inches/30 cm in length.
So I am planning to crochet these 14 rows 6 times which makes a total of 84 different coloured stripes to crochet and I have completed 4 lots of 14 stripes (56 stripes) so I am two thirds of the way through 84 stripes - YIPPEE!
This is the blanket that I started some time ago, probably September 2013, and which I have posted about here. Much of the crochet has been done while travelling to and from cross country races and football matches - sadly the season for both sports is now finished so I'll have to find time elsewhere..... ummmm, I'm sure that dusting and hoovering can wait while I crochet a few rows.
Unfortunately, as I said in my previous post, I realise that the blanket is going to be narrower than I intended so I am considering what I can do once I have finished the stripes to widen the blanket, possibly a wide, single colour border.
So even when I have completed the 84 stripes I will still have some serious crocheting to do before the blanket is finally finished.
So please hang on in there - it may be some time before I reveal the finished article.
Have you a major crafting project on the go at the moment? Do you prefer smaller projects that be completed relatively quickly?
Wishing you a good week
