Tuesday again! Time for a One-A-Day progress report (slow). We were away for the weekend and I crocheted on the plane, on the beach, on the verandah with a lovely view towards a lagoon (that made up for my snail's progress)*.
Weeks since I started : 10?
Numbers of times frogged : 1 (whole blanket), 3 (some rows)
Rows completed now : 19
Colours : 10, ±5 more
I am now aiming to just. Get. The. Sides. Straight.
That entails finishing and starting with only 3+2 stitches (as opposed to 4+2 in the pattern) and following the peaks and valleys as I get to them. Sometimes with 4 stitches between them (as per the pattern), sometimes with 3 (as not per the pattern).
As long as the final row remains more or less in place and semi-straight on the previous one.
I am SO not frogging again :-)
(I actually like the colours, it looks sooo nice, the rainbow. If I can just finish this thing! I do like the blanket, I know it will be pretty, on the back of the denim-covered couch at The Little Beach House).
Next week I'm going to blow you away with my mindboggling speed and accuracy ;-)
For other lovely projects and some real progress, have a look at the Tuesday Tallies over at Carole's blog, Gingerbread Girl. There are some looovely things to behold (good luck with your ripple, Barbina...).
* If you're in the mood for some Geography...search on a map, for Kenton-on-Sea in South Africa. What a beautiful place.
Hint: Eastern Cape, halfway between Port Elizabeth and East London.
Or just Google!
