Crochet Progress

I continue making progress on my rainbow afghan. I used a scale today to check progress; 32 oz of yarn in the afghan so far, 17 oz of yarn left in my skeins. Some pencil and paper math told me I might be a bit tight on the final set of 6 stripes; the variance is within the margin of error of measurements. This mainly matters for symmetry, as I have:


(rainbow6)
(rainbow6)
(rainbow6)
(one white row)
(rainbow6)
(rainbow6)
(rainbow6)
(one white row)
(rainbow6)
(rainbow6)
(rainbow6 maybe or maybe not)


Of course, when I start that last set of 6 rows, I'll basically know with the first color whether I'm likely to have enough yarn of all the colors to finish it out, or not. Then I plan to do edging with either white or black, so that gives me a little flexibility for the design. I could add a row or two of black at the end and it would just have a thick-border feel.

I would have preferred to do the set of two rainbow6 in the center instead of on one end, but I had already started the third center set before I did the measurements. Could still rip back, but eh. It's not that important to me to have it symmetrical.

I do find it awesome that I'm actually past the halfway point on the project. One color row = one hour of crocheting; so in the end I'll have put in around 55-60 hours on it, once I finish the edging. Wow.


It also occurred to me that I've been working on a pride blanket during my fire dedication years; visibility, shining, integrity, standing for what I believe in... It fits. And it's a pretty blanket.
