I hope everyone has had a good week. Tim started his vacation yesterday, so of course we've been incredibly busy the last two days. What is it about wanting to do everything all at once when you're on vacation? Aren't you supposed to be relaxing?
I was able to get caught up on my Mini Rings of Change blanket.
The colors are more true in the first picture; they're bright, but not that bright!
So far, I'm enjoying it immensely, although I didn't like rounds 14-16. They required an exact stitch count which required quiet concentration. In my house, that's a rare thing. I loved round 18; I've done the single crochet-treble crochet combo before and love the textured look.
How did everyone else do on theirs?

This week, let's tackle rounds 20-25. They're all similar (combinations of single crochets and different chain lengths) so should work up quickly.
I'm working on photo tutorials for our next couple assignments; round 28 has cross stitches (I think those are fun) and rounds 30-31 have inverted V-stitches (I've worked those on one of Hope's blankets). I know you veteran crocheters can do those with your eyes closed, but in case we have any newer stitchers or anyone wants to do this CAL another time, I thought the tutorials would help.
The Mini Rings of Change CAL page has finally been updated; if you want to see everyone's progress from the beginning, you can click on the link.
I'm off to do my cross stitch start for the day (it's still Friday for a couple of hours).A New Stitchy Start.
