Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So I wasn’t going to write about this blanket again for a while, but I kinda sorta accidentally (not really) finished the two things I did think I could talk about, so this blanket it is πŸ™‚

According to ravelry I started this in November, which is slightly problematic since the yarn was (supposed to be) an advent calender to myself…oops. Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter since I haven’t yet finished the yarn I got (but have ordered quite a bit more ot carry on, since I have nearly finished it).

Isn’t it pretty???? I would say that I dislike following the crowd, and this blanet is no exception. Most people do mitred squares sock yarn blankets, my first one was hexagons. The second (the pillowcase) and third (this one) are using the ‘traditional’ mitred squares, but with different construction (corner out for the pillowcase, and middle out for this one). I also stick the decreases on the wrong side rows beause I dislike the ridge they form. The other side looks so much prettier in my mind πŸ™‚ This is the back of it:

Well, that’s all from me for now. New post on Friday, since I have shiny finished things to show off πŸ˜€

  1. It looks lovely, the squares really show off the colours of the yarn.

  2. I agree about following the crowd and doing CALs and KALs as you’re in danger of seeing so many that you get sick of it before you’ve finished. The Eastern Jewels blanket has been the only one I’ve ever been tempted to do….and I LOVE it! Yes, the decreases do look better on the reverse as they stand out more in some colours than others. Looking good!

    • That’s true. I tend to not do C/KALS while they’re going because I like seeign the finished project before I start. That being said, I do want to do the last dance at some point…

  3. That’s lovely. It looks very complicated πŸ™‚

  4. Very pretty!
