Hi,
I was having a big sort out of all my craft stuff and came across this blanket. I'd completely forgotton about it and it must of been one of my first crochet projects. It was so close to being finished I don't know why I didn't complete it years ago. All I had to do was finish the edging.



It's kind of messy and badly finished, but I like the stripey squares. I might have a go at something similar for my next project. It's good to be able to look at something and see how much you've improved.

This project I've just completed. It's a colour experiment inspired by this post

 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374468.0   <----- soooooo beautiful



I used mophead stitch instead of spiderweb and only used 2 strands together.


I'm going to have another go at a project like this. It's great using a couple of strands together, it grows so fast!

Thanks for looking.

Alice

I love the first one. With the colours and patterns and the organised chaos of it, it reminds me of Teesha Moore. So fun and bright!

Amazing, I love them both. I love the granny sampler, the bursts of colors makes a wonderfully fun blanket.  What kind of yarn did you use for the "color experiment" blanket? I love the blend of colors and how it flows. There beautiful, and I love the choice of pattern stitch, very unique.
