It turned out quite BIG! Here it is covering half the loveseat in my living room. lol...
First, I tried making the edging shells of Treble Crochets ... that seemed pretty heavy for this blanket.
So, I pulled it out and redid it using Double Crochet instead. This looks much better [pic below]. Do you agree? The smaller edging doesn't dominate the whole blanket; just sits nicely on the edge and behaves itself. lol. It looks a bit unruly now, but will look better after it has been blocked.
This afghan is too big to get the whole thing in one picture, but I think the pic below shows enough of it that you can see the colors.
This was a very fun project to do. It was even more enjoyable because I have been crocheting along with friends: EllyD, LuAnn, Katrin, and Sucrette [this is a new URL for Sucrette]. All these ladies make fabulous art! I'm looking forward to sharing another project together sometime.
Well, this is the end of crochet for awhile -- I must get back to sewing, quilting, and finishing up those last two placemats and I have a new embroidery project all ready to go: [the drawing comes from BariJ's site. I redrew a few of the lines to more closely fit my needs -- artist's license, eh?!]
Thank you for stopping by to visit. I hope you will come back again... until then, may you have loads of time to quilt, sew, stitch, crochet, knit. . . whatever makes YOU happy! What do you like to do the best?
