Mikan, that blanket is stunning!  It's so great when you can use up stash yarn for a beautiful project.

Is anyone else feeling like this blanket is never going to end?  I've been working on it off and on for almost a year (granted, more off than on) and I'm really not that far...I love the look of the finished blanket but I'm having such a hard time dealing with the ends and the sewing (even though I just crochet over the ends and use the tails to sew).  Any advice on getting over that hump?

(here's a picture so it's not all words...you can see I'm really not that far.)

Hi, I've been watching this thread for awhile and am finally getting around to posting! I am tag-teaming this rather huge project with my girlfriend, and am glad to have the help- especially now that we're done with the squares and it's all seaming and weaving in ends.  here's a link to her flickr posting of sections 1-7:


 we dyed the yarn ourselves (it's knitpicks bare superwash merino dk) and i really like the mottled effect--- the picture makes the colors look brighter than they are .

this has been a fun project but yes, it is taking forever! and that's with two people working on it.   i think the end result will be worth it, though.

p.s. rina, i really like your stuff!  i've checked out your blog--i think we live in the same town so if you're ever up for coffee-shop crocheting maybe we can meet up sometime.

Yvette, love your blanket!

"Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time."

Adeemareej and Yvette, I love both your blankets.  I've been on a knitting kick for a while but am ready to pick up Babette again.  It's true, it does get a bit monotonous after a while.

Yvette, I love that you guy dyed your own yarn for the whole project!  KP bare superwash dk is a great choice.  Thanks for the compliment about my blog; I'll pm you about coffee shop crochet  Smiley

Well i cant decide if i like my colors or not! I may be going to buy a new scheme tomorrow morning. Also i didn't buy the actual pattern so i just drew it up here some pictures i took so far, tell me what you think of the colors..i don't like the verigated much, i feel like i doesn't really fit in. 

heres my layout, the numbers are the how many stiches are in a side length.

the pink isnt so garish in real life.

Pink Poodle, what a great idea to design your own granny square layout.   :)I like the variegated you have.  A little here and there can add interest. 

I think color choice depends on your personal color sense.  Next time I'm going to go with a smaller range of complementary colors (like blues/grays/browns) to keep things from looking too garish. 

I'm most of the way through Panel 8.  Each panel is bigger than the last, and I'm running out of some of my colors.  Worsted Weight yarn = more required yardage!  And Lion discontinued the Peacock and Turquoise woolease, my favorites....   Angry

I'm gonna jump in too! Just bought my pattern!   
I really love the colors that you picked pink poodle.
But, I think I'm gonna go with pinks, browns, & creams.
I love that combo.
Will be posting again soon.
