Weeeeeee, it's finished !!! My largest crochet project ,ever, is done,done, done.
Today I've spent quite a bit of time like this....
I was determined to finish it once I started the edging.
My edging is granny clusters in dark blue ,then a row of half double crochet(U.S. term) in light blue,then a picot stitch in the same colour to finish.
I wasn't sure if master BM would go with the slightly frilly look,but he said it reminded him of waves . Which I thought was very appropriate ,as so may of your lovely comments said the colours reminded them of the sea.........
Here we go with LOTS of GSB shots,folded.......
As you can see it ended up almost wide enough for a double bed,not sure how !
Love looking along the stripes ...
Not so sunny in the garden this afternoon but I couldn't resist a washing line shot.Well ,quite a few of the stripes have been completed outside.....
Yes I am very happy with how this has turned out ,can you tell!
Master BM is glad I've finally made him a blanket , over a year after I promised him one.
I'm glad it turned out so big as hopefully he will still use it into adulthood,well maybe .
So thank you again for all your encouragement, I know it would have taken me much longer without being able to share the fun.
And ,of course thank you to Lucy for more amazing inspiration,and the pattern!
Anyone out there who's thinking about starting one of these ,I would say do it.It's such an easy quick pattern,no concentration required,after the first couple of rows.
