My Blanket…..

….. is "all" done ( still missing a border! ;oD ) !!!!!!!


At the moment, it measures approx 2,60cmX1,60cm….
It consists of 116 rows ( and each row has 168 shells!) of 3 DCs shells and of 116 anchor rows….



I've selected 33 colours for this project ( remember that I didn't use new yarns, because I was trying to reduce my yarn stash, so when a colour was finished, I had to find a similar one!!!!), so I repeated my stripes scheme 7 times….




I decided to keep all the threads at the sides of the blanket, most probably because I'm lazy, but I thought I could use them while completing the border ( a very simple one I admit!) ….



My boys still have to be patient before a proper use of the blanket (not too long!!!!!) ….


…. and what about you ladies????? ;oD

  5. Super fabulous! You did a great crochet job!
    I saw the little photo on Pinterest and I thought your boys were with the blanket on the beach :) You may give yourself a pat on the shoulder, I'd love to, but I live too far away.
    Have a lovely day!
