That’s what I’m calling this blanket. I started it last week after I was done with all of my running around, finishing things up, sending things off, buying one last thing. . .
I’m using all the solid color (as opposed to variegated) blues and colors derived from blue from my stash. Leftovers from other projects, hand-me -downs, and yarns that came sealed in bags with other stuff from Goodwill. I saw the pattern here a while ago and really liked the looks of it. It is basically the same pattern as the ripple and the babette blankets I made - lots of double crochet - but this one is even simpler since it is *only* double crochet and it is worked in the space of the previous row, not in the top of the stitch.
Basically this blanket requires no thought, no purchases, and I’m on no deadline to finish it. It will probably end up in the boys’ room, but for now it is by the couch - it’s too big to be a carry-along project. I’ve cleared out a bunch of yarn ends that were too small for much else and I’m using colors that I would never otherwise choose. I relax just looking at it!
