And honestly it will be staying like this now.
I just took the six colours I decided I was going to use and did two rows of each colour.
Then I just turned the combination around by using the first colour second and the second colour first, the third colour fouth and the fouth colour third and so on.
I found this worked very well, so those 24 rows became my first block.
I think six blocks will make a nice size blanket.
In some of these photos that grey looks more bluey, but it is a lovely light grey really.
It's a real dark autumn day here today and very windy.
I've finished two blocks now so far (that is 48 rows).
So if six is big enough this means that one third of the blanket is finished.
