hmmm...


I've enjoyed re-purposing the old diaper bag for this project--it's like a Mary Poppins meets Dr. Housecall bag. Not so sure how I feel about the blankie at the mo. The colors are fun, and I enjoy the mostly random pull-outta-the-baggie color choice fun. The single crochet however, feels a little tight. Perhaps half-doubles might have done better in this instance...and a bigger hook...sigh. I'm considering ripping and beginning anew. It is nice and meditative, the up and the down, and I especially like decreasing for some reason. Anyone else feel the same way?

Yes! I totally feel the same way. I love me the decreasing. :)

Yup. The decreasing feels faster although it's really not. MK, I made a single crochet ripple in blues years ago. The blanket I'm making now is going to be so huge there is no way I would go for single on this one. Doubles it is!

I should have added that I like your colors!

thanks! yes, I decided to start over with half-doubles, and a bigger hook. It looks and feels so much better! I'm keeping the old beginning as a mini scarf.
It feels much faster now too! The sc's were annoying.
