Why two-thirds through is that significant, I don't know - but I've decided it should be marked in some way. It also means I can tell you a bit more about it, as I have never actually given any yarn information, despite sharing peeks of it in the past (such as in my most viewed ever post!) Yes, I started it over three years ago... there is no excuse for not finishing it by now!
The yarn I'm using is King Cole Cottonsoft DK, which is such a lovely soft yarn to work with, with a 5mm hook (instead of the 4mm recommended, as I have tight tension).
The colours are:
Above you can see all thirty completed stripes of colour. I plan to do fifteen more.
Current measurements are:
Width: 128cm / 50 inches
Length: 108cm / 42.5 inches (which will presumably grow by half again if (WHEN!) finished)
It's going to be a big one!
The pattern is a very simple - just rows and rows of double crochet (UK treble crochet) in a seemingly random pattern. (It's not random, of course - I have it carefully planned in a spreadsheet!!)
The good thing with stripes is that the blanket becomes a blanket on its own, so to speak. There is no pile of squares that are useless (apart from eye-candy purposes, that is) until sewn or crocheted together. Even though it's not finished, I've been able to cosy under it for ages - so that makes up a little for my extremely slow and lazy approach to finishing it, surely?!
However, I do hope that I'll be able to show-off the completed blanket at some point this year. But don't hold your breath!
