I'm making a blanket that I can snuggle with while reading in the chair in my bedroom. It will be roughly 67 inches long and 56 inches wide. I am using colors that match my duvet cover of greys and taupe.
The colors I chose are by Lion Brand. From back to front, they are:
Vanna's Choice Charcoal Grey
Vanna's Choice Silver Heather
Vanna's Choice Linen
Vanna's Glamour Moonstone (this is a sport #2 weight yarn, so I am doubling the strands to match the worsted #4 weight of the other yarns)
The pattern I am using is from attic24.typepad.com. Lucy has several lovely ripple designs, and I chose the interlocking ripple.
So as I sit here at McD's waiting for a call from the mechanic telling me they are on the way to pick me up after doing routing maintenance on my car, I have finally started this epic project. See how far I have gotten?
I am using an app on my phone to help keep track of stitches and rows. We will see how it works, as I haven't used it before!
I will try to post every couple days with my progress. I am hoping this will help with my stick-to-it-iveness, as in the past I have dwindled down and not finished large projects. There are the remains somewhere of a baby blanket (not grannys) for a friend's baby who is now almost 24. I think it measured about 30 inches by....maybe 6 inches. Not even a good scarf. But it was a pretty pattern!
Wish me luck...
