I have been very good with my One A Day Crochet this week, diligently completing a circuit of the round ripple afghan every day.
I have to admit that I am not in love with it at the moment. I think there is a combination of factors. I crochet in the evening and sometimes this makes the colours look wrong. I have issues with the green in this blanket, however I think that once I phase in the blue it probably will not look so bad. When I lay it out in the daytime (in secret when little B is not around) I don't find it so offensive. It also just isn't really my colours. My littlies have a beautiful game they play at the moment where they imagine they have little sprites to care for. B has Rainbow Sprite and L has Sunshine Sprite. I wanted to use the blankets to commemorate these wonderful imagining games they play together. Mostly because I am sentimental old fool and I sometimes feel they are growing up too fast. Anyway the blankets are for them, not for me, and I am pretty sure that B will love the colours.
Equally important was the terrible curl it was developing around the edge which shows a little in this picture. It got worse the bigger the blanket got and I didn't feel it would even fully disappear with blocking. Now I am trying a different pattern with the increases which I will detail in my Ravelry project page when I have settled on an approach.
This was the rainy Saturday morning I detailed in my last post, can you see how grumpy L was getting by any chance?
All credit to the One A Day Approach though, I haven't left it to gather dust yet! Even though I am rapidly developing a desire to examine the possibilities of felt (more of that another time).
Why not see how the other lovely crafty people are getting on at Gingerbread Girl's Blog?
