Can you see a bit of a wave there? Let's pan out a bit and have a really good look at what was happening. Are you ready for this ... beware, this is scary crochet, this is the horror story of straight rows of crochet. It may shock!!
Yes, I could put my crochet on the table and it formed a perfect circle!! At this point I thought I should just keep going and make a skirt of the mixed stitch stripey kind but I'm not sure my little town is ready for crochet garments!
My problem seemed to be with my tension. Tension of the blanket, which soon became tension of the person holding onto the hook. So, best solution? Undo. Lots and lots of rows came undone to get back to the problem. I don't think any amount of blocking was going to help this baby (not that I've ever blocked any work, I've always let the weight of a blanket and the use of a blanket be my blocking process).
Anyway I'm happy to announce that the circular look of the blanket is behind me, it's still a little wavy but I can live with a little wavy and I will, for the first time ever, block my work. I'll need your help on this at the end of the project. Lots of hints and tips please!!
So this is where I'm up to now. The next stitch to come is the bobble stitch and the very idea of it is scaring the pants off me!!
Have a lovely weekend.
