Here's the progress I've been making on the Through Any Window Baby Blanket.
By this morning I'd finished 23 rows (4 pattern repeats). The blanket measured 21" which is a bit bigger than the pattern gauge. I'm using thicker yarn and a larger hook...Caron pounders in pink and purple and Rainbow Boucle in a variegated baby color and a K hook.
By this evening, I'd done two more pattern repeats and now have 31 rows. The blanket measures about 27" now. One more pattern increase and the blanket size will be the same as the pattern. I haven't yet decided if I'm going to stop at one more repeat or do the last two repeats and just have the blanket measure slightly larger.
The pics above don't really show the colors very well, so I took a close-up under a desk lamp. You can really get a feel for the colors here. You can also see that the rainbow boucle is slightly fuzzy (and it doesn't shed!). I really love the boucle...its so soft!
The pattern is simple and once you get past the first few rows, its easily memorized. Gotta say I was surprised at how fast its working up too. I love a pattern like this...looks hard but isn't!
