Rainbow Granny Stripe Blanket
I have wanted to make a granny stripe blanket for ages. I have seen so many great ones around the blogosphere and always wanted to make a rainbow striped one. Although every time I went to make it there would be a colour that I was missing so it kept getting delayed.
Pattern: Granny Stripe Blanket by Attic 24
Yarn: Mix of colours from the stash

Finally I cast on at the start of November. It has taken me just over a month to complete this blanket but finally it is finished. I have had it sitting in my project basket and every time I sat down to watch tv I would crochet a few rows. So it was slow going but it was nice to have a project that didn't need to be finished to a deadline. Also I am really bad at sitting still so I like to be doing something while watching tv.
I am not too sure what I am going to do with this blanket. I cast it on without a person in mind. I might keep it to use for Imogen but she has quite a few blankets already. My cousin's girlfriend is having a baby in February but they are having a boy. Is a rainbow blanket too girly for a boy? It will probably just end up going into the gift box till a suitable recipient pops up.
