Arc en ciel in progress
It's been a while since I've given you an update on my arc-en-ciel blanket, but to be fair, it's been a while since I've done any work on it too.
What I often see as an advantage of crochet (over knitting for example) is also one of its downsides. You can leave it off at any point, there's no row to finish, each stitch is very much standalone. This also means that it gets put aside and forgotten about.
Consequently, this blanket is both a work in progress, and a regularly used blanket. It keeps me company in the evenings, and I occasionally pick up the hook and add a few rows to it.
I'm planning on getting this finished in the near future, as some serious travelling time is coming up. Can't wait to have it all done, it's so pretty and colourful! You can't help but smile when you look at so much colour. It's against nature I tell you.
