Since I last updated my garter stripe blanket progress, well… I’ve made a lot of progress. (Picture heavy ahead!)
I got busy working on the second repeat of the spectrum…
I took the blanket with me on the bus, and to work…
But then it got a bit unwieldy. So I worked on it at home…
And then! I got to the second True Blue stripe! This one felt extra special, because I got to use both the last bits of my own leftover True Blue, and some in the same colourway sent to me by my extremely kind friend Amber :)
Then… a calamity. I ran out of navy yarn just three rows away from the end of the stripe.
So, I wove in ends for a while, to keep busy until I could pick up more navy yarn.
LUCKILY, the navy yarn is Berroco Vintage, easily acquired at one of my local yarn stores. Thank goodness it wasn’t a rare hand dye!
Before I picked up more navy, I also started thinking more seriously about the edging for the blanket. I’m going to use some natural, undyed Juniper Moon Farm 100% cormo wool yarn that I happen to have… so I wound that up.
It smells aaaaahmaaaaaazing, feels wonderful and lanoliney, and is going to make an amazing edging.
Next time I update, I should be showing you the finished spectrum-ey portion, and be all ready to start the border bits :D
