Have I mentioned that I really, really like garter stitch? And blankets? And projects that combine those two things? Also STRIPES? Also yellow and green? I am so excited about this blanket :)
Pictures? Of course!
I used my thematically appropriate yellow and green yarn ball stitch markers.
It started to grow really quickly right away!
Because I've used a different needle size from the pattern (I'm using a 5.5mm needle), I've adjusted the numbers a bit. I continued increasing the initial triangular section until I had a total of 269 sts (134 sts on either side of the center stitch).
Why 269? That's when I ran out of yellow :)
Next up? Gold heather!
Matching teapot optional! In just a couple of tea-filled evenings and boredom-filled bus rides, I've made lots of progress already.
The rows are so long that they gobble up yarn like nobody's business. Already, in just 15 rows, I've used up 40g of yarn.
How wide will the stripes be? More on that next time! It might involve a golden rule...
