Book Blanket's & Kaleidoscope.

I'm working on 3 blankets at the moment and I can't share any of them, its very frustrating as I'm really excited and I'd love to know what you think, so.......

But I can tell you a little bit about what I'm doing.

1 - Kaleidoscope 2014
I finished it last night, I have a few ends to sew in and a couple of rounds to do around the edge.
I've been working on this for 6 month's, and it feels like a major achievement.
It normally takes me about 2 months to make a blanket, but I've had to stop every round and photograph it and write the pattern.

This photo was of October, the light has washed some of the colour out so I'm happy to share it as I don't think it gives too much away.

2 - Book blanket no 1
Has been on hold for a few weeks, I finished about 1/3rd of it.
The trouble was I got so excited about book blanket no 2 that I had to work on it instead of no1

3 - Book blanket no 2
Is now on hold until I finish the Kaleidoscope, its sitting on the back of the sofa calling my name.
It's over half finished, I started it when we came back from Unravel at the end of February, so I've been working on it for 5 weeks.
As soon as the Kaleidoscope is finished (maybe tonight) I will go back to it.
Its a double bed size made in 4 ply, so is going to take a lot longer than normal.

Here's a photo, there are more, but they give the colour away so I'll wait until my publishers have approved them.

I am now about 12 weeks into my blanket book schedule.
I should have finished one and be close to finishing the second, but all I have to show for 12 weeks work is 2 half finished blankets.
I'm a bit panicky about time, but as book blanket no 3 is going to be a sofa throw made with DK it should be a lot quicker to make and help me catch up.
