Great job Mishymishy I love the colors you used.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Hi, I need some advice on where to go from here with this star blanket.  I like the rainbow colours but my husband thinks they're too busy - its a blanket for a friend.  Now I can't decide.  I'm also trying to make up my mind whether to do more rows of black, or more rows of colour before doing another row of black, or whether to alternate them from now on.  What do you think?  I'm in an indecisive mood and I need some opinions to help me make up my mind - please help!  Here is the work in progress:

I say ignore husband!  I would do more rows of color before you do more rows of black (the black is a neat contrast!)

I love the rainbow colours! I have to agree and say ignore the husband too. Maybe you could increase the black at it gets bigger, rather than just one row?

What yarn is it you're using? I really like it Smiley

I think maybe try to pick out another color from it, like the yellow, and do several rows of that then do a row of the black between each color change.

I am almost done with mine, 6.5 rows to go.

Thanks everyone!  What I have gone with so far is black row, 3 rows rainbow, single black row, 5 rows rainbow, I'm now going to experiment with two rows black and see where I get from there.

The yarn is Courtelle Chevy premier - that doesn't really mean anything to me - I bought it cheap off ebay - 500g for 5.45!  I like the colours but it isn't the softest of acrylics which is a bit of a shame, if i wash it with fabric softener after its finished do you think that will soften it up?

I used some patons fab and tried washing it (it's a seriously rough acyclic) and found it came up a lot softer although it was knitted and didn't really drape - I'd think crochet would be even better.
