I thought I'd share a bit more of the blanket I'm making with the mutant cotton. I'm now on to my tenth ball of yarn and it has really grown.
I said in an earlier post that this was't a yarn for dithering with. I should have known that saying something like that would bring on a crisis of crochet confidence.
I love the gentle scallop-y holey look. I really do. But will it look ok as a whole blanket? I just don't know. Late last night I decided that what it needed was a bit of plain to break up the scallop-y bits and a ridge between each different bit of pattern. I've made a start, can you see?
But then this morning I couldn't decide if this was the right thing to do. I was going to work a few rows of htr after the ridge, then another ridge, then back to the scallops. What do you think, dear reader? Break it up or not? To add to the pressure, this is my tenth ball of yarn and therefore the last in the pack. I need to order more (I know, I've decided to wing it as far as dyelots are concerned), but that won't be until I put in another yarn order for the shop.
And typically, while I had it on the bed to photograph it, I had another dither and then this happened:
Honestly, nothing is safe when cat #1 fancies a nap.
