I started a new blanket this weekend. I vaguely think that the parents may have had this blog's link at one point so I don't want to give away too much information but I'm quite excited about it. I started it Friday and the pattern called for Treble crochet radiating out from the center in a circle (really a dodecagon). I didn't like the way it looked so I tore it out after about 6 rounds Saturday and started again but using a smaller hook and double-crochet. I'm now about 20 rounds in and have used up one skein of yarn. I think it looks great and it seems to be going really fast. Of course R reminds me that circular blankets always seem to go fast at the start but I finished a skein of yarn in a day so that's got to be fast, right?
Also, it's giving me a break from working on a blanket for my oldest sister. She asked for a blanket when I saw her in November and I started one but a. It's earth tones which I don't particularly like and b. it's for a king-size bed so it's huge and pretty boring. I'm going to end up having to force myself to work on it like I have to do 4 rows when I do 2 rounds of the fun one or something.
