Something Different

It's summer and the weather is glorious and hot! What better time to work on a granny stripe blanket?

Sometimes I baffle myself.

I've been working on this off and on for about 3 years, I think. I've never posted a picture because I thought it would be too boring. But I haven't stitched a thing for a week so we finally get to see it on the blog.

It's a very lovely deep green, much nicer in person. The plan is to have a black stripe near the bottom and several stripes of varying thickness at the top. It's 80 inches wide and currently 47 inches long. I'll stop when it looks long enough or when I run out of yarn. This is such a vaguely planned project lol.

Haha...I love how this blanket is being put together. Vague ideas can often be the best though so I bet it will look amazing! xx

Sometimes is nice to change it up a bit:) I alternate between cross stitching, knitting and crocheting depending on my mood:) I love the green colour of your blanket-Im sure it'll look great and give you a great sense of achievement when it's finished:)

Looks fab. It is nice to work on things completely different every so often. I bounce around between different crafts all the time.
