Friday is for Crochet

I'm moving right along on the Neat Ripple blanket!  I haven't measured it, but it's probably just over a foot wide at this point.  I can tell I'll have to keep it folded to work on it when it warms up around here, because when this gets bigger, it's going to keep my lap warm while I work on it.  Fortunately, today is cold and windy, and really cold, and did I mention how cold it got all of a sudden?  I love the heated seats in my car.

Also, I'm having fun with the colors.  I'm not through all the colors yet, in fact I don't think I'm halfway through the colors.  Nope, I just counted and I'm on color 6 and I have 14 colors, but technically I have 15 because I have two of Tart (the red at the bottom), and I plan to use it twice for each full repeat.  The blue I'm working on now is the first row of what will be the double stripe for that color.  If I can remember, I'm going to weigh my next color before I start it, to see how much yarn it takes for a single repeat of each color (one single row, one double row, and one single row).  Then I'll know how many total repeats I can do.

Have a great weekend and stay warm!

Love the blanket. I am about 2 feet into mine and am using rainbow colors. What a good idea to use the single and double rows. You get to use more of your yarn that way.
