Here it is, as promised, an update on my blanket!
This is where I was, last time I posted a photo.
Having lots of fun with all my pretty colours!
Having waited SO impatiently for little woollie's next post about this blanket I got started pretty much straight away.
The chevron pattern went well, I was a bit alarmed at how purple the blanket started to look but as soon as I put some more rows on top the colours started to balance out a bit.
I was not happy. The more I looked at it the more unhappy I was with it.
It wasn't the colour, or the stripes.
It wasn't even the wiggly, uneven edges.
No, it was the curl.
Since adding the 6 rows of sc (dc uk) the blanket was curling, the sc was tighter than the rest of the stitches.
So I left it.
Looked at it.
I would spread it out on the carpet and look at it while I did other projects.
But I still didn't like it.
I worried about ripping back 6 rows.
I worried more that if I carried on, I might end up ripping back a lot more than 6 rows!
I chatted to the lovely Fiona on Ravelry and she suggested I try a bigger hook for my sc rows.
So I bravely ripped back 6 rows!
But then for some unknown reason I decided to work in hdc (htr uk) instead of sc.
and I'm MUCH happier with it now!
So this is where I was last time I had the camera out.
I've done a few rows since, but still not quite completed up to the end of the 2nd post.
And now there's a 3rd post!!!!
I need to get crocheting.
So, who else is tackling this blanket?
