In spending too much time on Pinterest :o) I found this little stitch that I totally fell in love with.
It is a sc, dc, dc all in the sc of the previous row.
I started a chain that I had done the math and thought I would wind up with a blanket that would be approximately 4 feet wide. Well....it wound up being 6 feet wide (obviously, I need to go back to 1st grade!) so now I have decided that is the length - I have made it 2 feet wide so far and have about 2 feet to go. It is truly eating the yarn though. I have used a one pound ball of yarn and 2 other normal size balls of yarn that were in my stash and then purchased another one pound ball of yarn of which I am about one quarter of the way through. It is going to be one heavy, warm blanket!!
Both my husband and my daughter want a bright turquoise edging so this is what I chose. I am not quite sold on it yet. What do you think?
This is my progress so far. My oldest daughter asked if it could be all white, and I had said, "Sure!" Now, after hours and hours of time with this monster, I am sort of regretting that decision. Just a little color, please?????
This is the current book that I am pouring over. It is really well written and easy to follow. I am planning on trying out some of these ideas in the new scarf that I am trying to make from start to finish on my loom. So far, I really like the Leno Lace so that will make it into the scarf, but I'm not sure what else.
