Octagon Blankie Progress Update

IMG_8173 small.jpg

All the shapes are done, all the sewing is done.  I just have to do a border, crocheting over all the loose ends.  I’m going to do a row or two of navy dc and then maybe a row of silver shells around the edges.  I’ll have to think about that one more.

I don’t know how anyone makes full size blankets of afghans in worsted weight or smaller yarn.  They always look amazing, but they must take ages to complete.

  2. I know what you mean about the thinner yarns. It is quite tedious. I like using the Bernat blanket yarn. Everything goes so quickly and I feel accomplished. haha
    This blanket looks amazing! It makes me think of Jack Frost. (From the kid movie Rise of the Guardians. I have seen it a LOT. More times then I want to admit thanks to my kids.)
