I finished Tim's blanket! This is the second of 3 "brother blankets". They all use the same yarn (different colors) and pattern.
The color (Cheyenne) is a little more accurate in this photo, although that doesn't matter because I can't find any place where this yarn is still available in this color.
Here are all the details:
Cascade Cartwheel Yarn, 7 balls, it's labeled color 18 but that color number doesn't exist. I think it's color 18 - Cheyenne.
Pattern from BagODay Crochet, pattern repeat is 8 stitches plus 3
I used a K hook and chained 147 stitches (with an L hook)
Here are the Eddie and Tim blankets ready for delivery whenever I see them next. I'll see Tim soon. I might see Eddie before Christmas. He likes handmade quilts and blankets so he might make an effort to get it. We were talking this weekend and actually said "I'll take all the handmade quilts and blankets that you want to give me." That was nice.
As I make these blankets I add the leftover yarn to this corner-to-corner blanket. Eventually it will probably be a small lap blankets, maybe for a wheelchair. I really don't like having leftover yarn balls.
Since I finished 2 blankets this month I started 2 new ones. First is the third brother blanket. This one is the "David blanket" and the yarn color is called Santa Fe. I don't think this color is available anymore either.
The second one will be a donation baby blanket in Mandala Ombre yarn. I'm doing a ripple linen stitch using this pattern. This is my swatch so that I could check my hook size and determine how many repeats I needed (18) for the size blanket I wanted to do.
I'm all set for crochet projects for a couple of months.
