Yet another thing I started while pregnant, dreaming of finishing before baby arrived.
Well, baby is almost one.
Umm oops!
Anyway, I went to finish it and managed two stripes when I realized I have run out of one colour. Oh darn.

Its a bit thin, but kinda long so I'm not sure how good a blanket it will be...
I was thinking of trying to be creative and maybe make some wearable item, or stuffed item. I dont know??? It looked kinda cute ass a shawl but honestly it is getting to winter here so totally useless keeping my shoulders warm while the rest of me freezes.

Any ideas for a skinny rectangle made up of double crochet???

Here it is anyway, I love the colour combo, usually I get it so wrong but I think I did ok this time. Grin





Any help would be lovely XD

couldn't you widen (fatten) it a bit by adding solid colors or just stripes of what colors you have left over on either side? That way the lovely bit you have done becomes a feature in the centre.

Is it long and narrow enough to be used as a ....
Do you have a sofa or a couch in your house? Love-seat? (I'm not sure what name you call a shortened version of a sofa.)  Or an armchair - in any room.

You could lay it over the back of a piece of furniture - after you crochet an edge around it, in a matching colour (wither matching to the cloth or matching to the room colours) - and it will remind you of when you were pregnant.
