Stripes of Crochet


I cannot believe I have started yet another project.
Why is it so exciting to start something, but yet, not exciting enough to keep going on what I have already begun, and finish something else?
OH! The thrill of gathering up the supplies and items needed for a new venture I guess. :P

I have spotted this beautiful pattern for a Granny Stripe Crochet blanket pattern on my dear friend Hazel's blog.
She was crocheting the most beautiful blanket, and I was so intrigued!

I am so glad she posted the blog that she had found the directions on.
I wasn't sure if I could manage it, but I think I have figured out how to make it right.
So far so good.
I am not using any particular pattern of colors, just throwing it together.
I did a chain of 240 stitches to start.
I am using Impeccable Loops and Threads Yarn I found at Michaels Craft Store. It is on sale this week!
I purchased 9 colors..but may go back for more.

So far so good, and I think it is coming along nicely.
Pretty I think!
The pattern can be found on Attic24's Blog


Perhaps you would like to give it a go?
