Good news, everybody, we're extending arts and crafts time by four hours today.

It's time for another project post. With this one, I really need some feedback. I am working on crocheting a baby blanket for Shaquifa. (If you are missing the Shaquifa joke, maybe this post will help slightly with the reference).

I'm not thrilled with how this pattern is turning out. The pattern is really really long, and it is becoming really big. With how thin the yarn is the blanket gets kind of stretched out.

So again here are what I am thinking are the options:
1. Keep going and wind up with a really huge blanket that I don't really like.
2. Undo it all and start over by modifying the pattern I am using.
3. Undo it all and start over with a new pattern.

With this next picture I put a normal throw pillow, just so you can actually tell how large the blanket is.

And here is a closer shot of the pattern, so you can properly weigh in on whether to keep the current pattern.

  1. Hmmm... the pattern is cute, but I can see how it being huge would pull on the delicate lace-like pattern. I also thought it looked ok until you put the pillow next to it :) It is huge! hahaha. Um, I guess my vote is, if you have the time, to do a new blanket in the right size so that you are happy with it. I am not sure whether to change the pattern. This one is cute, but the other pattern you did for your friend was also cute, so I think you have options.
