Continuing with my Scrap-Happy-Stash-and-UFO-Busting-Blanket as mentioned in last month’s post.
This was a perfect travelling companion: this photo taken at Gatwick whilst we were waiting to board the plane for a 5.5hr flight to Hurghada, Egypt.
No scissors needed and the crochet hook passed through airport security no problem.
I had taken other, more demanding projects with me for the week, but this was there for any odd moment of waiting around, or sitting chatting with a glass of pre-dinner Rosé.
Progress at the end of a week’s holiday:
It measures Width 1m 20cm at its narrowest point , and 90cm Long.
I intend to make it about 1m 75cm long and then add a one coloured edging – probably in the chunky pale turquoise yarn, as I have lots of that.
You might have spotted that one side has gone a bit wonky, and I seem to have changed to a 5.5mm crochet hook along the way, but the joy of this sort of blanket is that I don’t mind about that and will just keep going, but I will decrease some stitches on the left side.
(Edit: I realised it would always annoy me, so I unpicked it back to before it strted going wonky.)
I just love crocheting this and watching for the next colour to come along, each one reminding me of a former project.
