A Golden Thread

Cosy Stripe Blanket

My Cosy Stripe Blanket is almost halfway with 43 stripes (86 rows) completed.  I've had golden thread sitting in my stash for quite some time and decided to crochet it into one of the stripes.  I'm hoping there will be enough leftover to do another golden stripe later on too!  I've also got some metallic bronze to introduce into the colour palette as well! 

Matisse and I snuggling up and crocheting the golden thread into the latest stripe:

It's been really fun using so many different colours.  I do have a plan I'm working off... but I've also spontaneously changed things as I go along, so the colour order hasn't been completely set in stone.   The pattern is from Lucy at Attic 24

Previous progress at 18 stripes:

    1. Thank you Karen, the blanket is very cozy (comfortable & warm). It's now big enough to drape over my legs and keep me warm while I'm stitching it! It's pretty chilly here at the moment, so it's certainly been useful! :D
