wool eater blanket CAL week 7ish...

 It is taking a lot longer to get around my wool eater now, and I'm right out of step with the schedule for the CAL but most people seem to be working at their own pace and I think that is the best way to go anyway.  With each round I grow more and more pleased with how the blanket is turning out....It  is such a warm blanket and I know it will be a favourite when winter arrives, hopefully it will be finished with soon.  I'm still not sure how many more rounds I will do, but I have decided that I will not purchase any more yarn for it so that will help me decide.
So I added another two rounds since I last blogged about this project - light marl grey & Teal and each round of pattern (two actual rounds of crochet) now uses more than 1 full 100gm ball, so this pattern really does deserve its name ;)
The blanket now measures 129cm square and weighs approx 1290gms and is very warm!

details can be found here on Sarah's blog.
there is also a Ravelry group here for this CAL
 
Have a great weekend everyone!

That wool eaters blanket is looking lovely. I'll bet it's nice and snug too because of the thickness of it. It might just inspire me to do one this autumn!
I love all Sarah London's patterns and she has a great eye for colour too.
Nice to visit you here!

It looks so lovely! Even when it's folded up like that! Just gorgeous! I started one in cotton but having huge second thoughts, want to frog it and start again in acrylic!
