The full pattern is now available in one post! Check it out here.
So the gap happened to be yesterday evening! The end is finally near. I’ve added a few more rows. Last time the blanket looked like this:
It started to look like something, right? I have to admit that I am ready for this blanket to be finished, if you know what I mean. So I looked back at what stitches I hadn’t used in a while and repeated a few of those. A catherine wheel, a few rows of granny clusters, bobbles, a wavy stitch, regular rows…
It started to look finished! I kept on going untill the blanket was square (1.80 m or so). By the way, I’m so happy with the new colours stylecraft released! The orange is beautiful, I hadn’t had the chance to use it before but it’s not the neon-colour the other orange looks like, but rather a autumny orange teint. It just looks so much better! (the photo doesn’t do the colour its true justice but look up the color ‘spice’ from Stylecraft and you’ll see what I mean).
Seriously, now I’m done! All that is left to finish is the border. I’ve been musing about it, it probably will be the grey I used in between the different stitches because there is no colour left that hasn’t been used in the blanket. And while I’m thinking about it, it probably would draw the attention away from the stitches anyhow. I think fancy borders are destined for other blankets… But we’ll see! So that means that the next update is the final update/ta-dah!
