Garter Spectrum Stripe Blanket CATCH UP!

Since I last updated my garter stripe blanket progress, well... I've made a lot of progress. (Picture heavy ahead!) I got busy working on the second repeat of the spectrum...


I took the blanket with me on the bus, and to work...


But then it got a bit unwieldy. So I worked on it at home...


And then! I got to the second True Blue stripe! This one felt extra special, because I got to use both the last bits of my own leftover True Blue, and some in the same colourway sent to me by my extremely kind friend Amber :)





Then... a calamity. I ran out of navy yarn just three rows away from the end of the stripe.


So, I wove in ends for a while, to keep busy until I could pick up more navy yarn.


LUCKILY, the navy yarn is Berroco Vintage, easily acquired at one of my local yarn stores. Thank goodness it wasn't a rare hand dye!


Before I picked up more navy, I also started thinking more seriously about the edging for the blanket. I'm going to use some natural, undyed Juniper Moon Farm 100% cormo wool yarn that I happen to have... so I wound that up.


It smells aaaaahmaaaaaazing, feels wonderful and lanoliney, and is going to make an amazing edging.

Next time I update, I should be showing you the finished spectrum-ey portion, and be all ready to start the border bits :D
