Sooo Close!

I’m getting really close to finishing my Chroma blanket!

Out of 120 5″ squares, I’ve crocheted over 100 of them. I only have three more rows of squares to attach, and then it’s on to the border! It’s already big enough to provide some serious warmth.

In typical fashion, I’ve been weaving in the ends as I go, so I’m not burdened with having to weave in about 250 ends at once. If that was the case, I don’t think I’d ever be done. But this way, when that last square is put in place, I’ll just have two ends to worry about.

What I’m really looking forward to, though, even more than being able to snuggle up under this wonderful blanket, is starting my next project! I still don’t know what I’m going to do, but I’ve gathered up some beautiful colors of our new Wool of the Andes Superwash, and it’s just begging to be made into something.

I’m just dying to cast on, but first – I’ve got to get through the last dozen or so squares on my blanket. It’s the home stretch now!

    How fun to have such a beautiful, colorful blanket! And I can see from the photos you already have someone to share it with… =)

    That is so beautiful. I am just finishing a granny square blanket made with different kinds of sock yarn. Know you have given me another idea.

    Well done. That is beautiful. Kitty approves.

      Kitty most certainly approves! The blanket is in a bag with the remaining squares right now, and he knocked the bag over to snuggle up with the blanket. I think he’s claimed it!

    I love the colors – it’s such a fresh take on a classic blanket style!

    What color scheme is your yarn?

    I have made socks with Chroma and while I love the yarn I wasn’t thrilled with the way colors knit up but this blanket is beautiful!!! I’d definitely buy Chroma and make an afghan!!

      I’m so thrilled with the colors, too. The great thing about granny square type projects and Chroma is that each square only uses a small part of the color repeat, so you get a really great variety of squares with just a few colors. It’s really fun watching it come together!

    LOVE the colors! The first real crochet project I ever did was granny squares YEARS ago. Now I want to do another seeing this!

    What a cheerful, sunny blanket! I can just picture snuggling under this on a cold, grey winter’s afternoon.

    Just wondering if anyone reads these comments, to respond?

      Hi MaryEllen, unfortunately, Kerin is on vacation this week and we’re not sure exactly what motif she is using for this blanket. This is one that several of us have made that is very similar. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bullseye-3

    Does anyone know how much yarn that she need to make the afghan?

  12. MaryEllen / September 7, 2013

    I appreciate the reply, though I’m still hoping Kerin will come back and provide an answer.

    How many balls of Chroma did you need?
