Keep Calm Craft On

Hi everyone, sorry I've been so quiet lately. I've not really been doing much crafting and when I do get some done it's so slow that there isn't really much progress worth showing. At the moment I'm working on the border for my blanket. It's reminding me a lot of linen stitch in knitting and I love how it's turning out. It's going to take a few more rows until it's as thick as I'd like it to be


I'm alternating double crochet stitches and a chain space. If I'd got enough of the bright blue yarn I used for joining then I would have used it for every other row to get a striped effect. Instead I think I will do a row of blue treble stitches for the final row to sandwich the multicoloured bit (if that makes sense!)


I've not got round to a corner yet with the green but thought I'd just show you this photo because I love how neat the corners are looking. I guess this border is quite time consuming but I'm enjoying working on it :-)


Hopefully I can get a couple of rounds done today. I'm wanting to get this project finished by the end of the month so I need to get a move on! I'm going to link up with Keep Calm Craft On today so hop over to read more posts about what other people are working on this week :-)
