day 28

it's been 10 days since i last showed you all any progress, and that progress has been minimal. i'm halfway through, having crocheted 1 band of 2 rows per color. i don't really feel any love for this blanket in person, but i really like it in pictures. go figure.

the blanket is 5 feet wide. based on my calculations i'd planned on being able to crochet 3 2-row bands per color, but i'm only going to be able to get 2. the yarn band lies.

I am loving yours. It isn't growning on you? - nuts!

My experience is exactly opposite yours. I think mine looks better in person and the photos kind of stink.

I have the same problem: loving the photos of my blanket and being unsure of it in person. I think your is beautiful -- and it's true we're our own toughest critics.
