CAL as-we-go stripey blanket: week 1!

When I saw that Hannah from Not your average crochet was running a CAL I knew I wanted to join in. I had initial doubts though as the project was a blanket and I wasn't sure if I could take on another big project like that. I'm so glad I did though as I whizzed through the first 5 rows on Sunday!

First job was to start my foundation row:

Yes these are my baby feet that I showed you the other day! (Size 2.. sob!)

Next was the HDC (half double crochet - using US terminology) round.
This is one of my favourite stitches and I really should use it more!

Row 2 was the double crochet row!

Then this was topped off with 3 "granny stripes", or rows of clusters.

And that's the end of this weeks rows!

I have been good and sewn the ends in as was suggested, but that was after I took the pictures!

Here's Hannah's first 5 rows..

I can't wait to get started on week 2!
