What was your inspiration?
I wanted a blanket with all the colors of a crayon box. It was actually a birthday present to myself.
What are you most proud of?
The pattern is very simple but it was my own creation. I had no idea how the finished product would look because I didn't know what type of border that I was going to use until I started working on it. I just found a stitch that I really liked and worked it out in my head as I went along.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is a simple pattern but it did take some time to finish. I lost patience with it several times since I wasn't actually following a pattern (unfortunately, I didn't write it down either) Take plenty of breaks when making the border to give your eyes and hands a rest.
