Granny stripe - a colourful start

    Newer Older

    I chained about 360 for the foundation of this blanket, and I must admit I thought I'd bitten off more than I could chew. But now I'm up and running, flowing through row upon row of nice 'n'easy treble clusters, I'm happy, Happy, HAPPY. Seeing it grow fills me with glee, and satisfies my thirst for colour. It's going to be huge!!! Another big thank you to Lucy for the inspiration :)

    ......and it really helps that it's a beautifully sunny spring day here in the UK, ideal for taking progress piccys :)

      360 - wow! i started at 300, then unpicked it and went down to 270. I was afraid i would lose interest if it took me too long for each line. beautiful colour order.

      Oh my....360?! That's huge. I chained 227 and thought I'd regret making it so big, but like you said...no regrets!

      Everything in your picture is just scrumptious!
