However after doing a few stripes I thought this is too complicated and time consuming to be done in a hurry. I really do want to do that type of blanket, but at an easy pace when I can get it right.
So this is the result so far. I am using the famous Attic24 Granny Stripe pattern, that gives you a nice thick even blanket with not much effort. I am quite liking the colour combination and it looks a lot brighter when you are looking at the actual thing.
Yesterday I sat outside in the sun (yes we do get sun in Ireland) and did several colours. It was quite therapeutic, as I didn't have to concentrate much and I could see to do it without glasses, as the light was so bright.
