Firstly, my crochet couch granny blanket has gone from WIP to FO.
Using leftover wool, mainly Bendigo Rustic and Luxury, in shades of grey, blue and red, this has been a great project to work on in-between other projects.
I started with classic granny treble...clusters? I'm not sure if that's what they are called if you don't pull them all together with the last chain? My crochet friends will know, I have faith. I got bored with those after a while, so switched to straight trebles for the border, finishing with a 5tr...shell?
I am not a natural crocheter, so I do like how you can "fudge" minor stitch errors. And how you can just pretty well make it up as you go.
It's the perfect "couch" size, just right to ward off drafts, but not too warm as to be considered bulky.
Then my chevron scarf in Crazy Zauerball got some serious attention and it turning out so deliciously retro, I can't stop admiring it!
Red, green and yellow are not my favourite colour combo by any means usually, but there seems to be enough blending and colour surprises to keep it just off the edge of replecating traffic lights.
I'm anticipating I'm about halfway through the ball now - didn't weigh it at the start, but it doesn't really matter with this pattern. To echo Dory, just keep knitting...
