"2 Bizarre 4 the Car" Blanket is finished!

I began work on this blanket/rug for my car back in early November. With all the holiday "craziness" I've had to put it aside for quite awhile. Now that Christmas is finished I had some time to get back to it. My goal was to finish it by the end of the week. Check!

I was intending to make the joins very noticeable with a SC-join, but either I wasn't doing something right or it just looked funny. In the end I whipstitched them together and added two rounds of SC for the edging.


  1. ooohhhh.... fun..... was that done with the 'vintage hues' yarn everyone has been talking about???

  2. Yes, laughing purple goldfish, this was made with Cleckheaton's Vintage Hues. Even though all balls were the same colourway, it's amazing how the colours vary - even in brightness.

    I wanted them all to be the more "bright" shade, and was initially disappointed with the lighter ones, but in the end, I like the variations.

  3. It is lovely AuntyElle, and not too bizarre at all.

    I think your lovely car will be very grateful for such a fine fashion accessory!!!
