What was your inspiration?
When my friend realized I crocheted, he asked that I make him a blanket in these colors. He was looking for something to remind him of some good times, when he was a kid. I found this pattern and it begged to be used.
My dog loved it, too. She was on that thing as soon as I got it out, every time I worked on it.
What are you most proud of?
The balance of colors, and the even stitches turned out better than I expected. It looks so uniform!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is pretty mindless, but I made some odd mistakes because of it. Just make sure you look it over every couple of rows to be sure you haven't added waves where there shouldn't be any.
