Well, it's not exactly new. I've posted before about working on it but this is the first post with some more details and some photos.
Planning on 12 skeins of Lion Brand Colorwaves in Caribbean
Close ups: Don't you LOVE the colors? :)
Hook: I (5.5 mm)
Pattern: Just double crochet back and forth. The yarn makes the textures of other stitches hard to see and, for some of them - like dc in the back loop - near impossible. The border is still up in the air.
Progress: The photo above is 8 skeins worth of yarn and it measures approximately 43" length and somewhere between 44"-47" wide. Why the huge discrepancy? Beats me. I just couldn't get a consistent measurement this morning. I'm hoping this was due to the lack of caffeine and not a wonky blanket.
Now that I've got enough yarn to finish this one and make another one, I need to decide if I'll give both away as Christmas gifts - or keep one for myself...which is very likely to happen.
