I know that sounds crazy but there is something about my earthy color palette that makes my blanket feel very spastic and disorganized and that in turn made me feel uneasy. Not as in "oh I'm not sure" but as in a full blown physical unrest when it came to this project. It needed to be grounded in some way and I figured it out.
I'm going to anchor it with cream squares at the intersections and solid squares down the middle. That lowers the chaos factor by a million and I've fallen in love with my blanket again. So much so that I'm getting off of here right now to go and work on it some more!
|I'll update my Ravelry project page tonight so you can see how well this anchoring works!|
