Stripey Blanket - Part 3

Hello ladies (and gents if there any gentlemen readers this lovely morning!) Has January not just whizzed by? I am personally so looking forward to moving along to end of Feb and into March;  this is when our cooler months start.  We have had wickedly hot weather lately .. too hot to crochet, too hot to do much of anything actually!

My As-we-go Stripey blanket is beginning to look really stunning #saysIwithnomodestywhatsoever !!!

Here are the next few rows:
Row 32-34 : Hdc rows in Bluebell, Meadow and Bluebell
Row 35 : Sc row in Pomegranate  ~ this is where I started the Star Stitch pattern rows.
Row 36-37 : Star stitch rows in Wisteria
Rows 36 : Sc row in Pomegranate ~ ends the Star Stitch section
Rows 37-39 : Hdc rows in Saffron, Magenta and Saffron
Rows 38 - 41 : Repeat of rows 18-21 ~ 4 Dc Shell sts in Meadow, Sc row in Fondant, Dc Shell rows in Plum and Sc row in Fondant again.
Rows 42 - 44 : Hdc rows in Meadow, Shrimp and Meadow
Row 43 : First row of Catherine Wheel pattern in Magenta

Just take a look at my edges .... as I finish a section I am tidying away the threads, it is the only way and works for me!
I am dashing to my wool shop this morning .. I need more Aspen Green ..... AND they are having their January sale.. this could be an exciting albeit pricey trip .. who can resist a wool sale!!  And gosh, my days are just disappearing in a blur lately, taking my dear David to work and then collecting him again in the afternoon takes huge chunks of time out of my daily round.  His wrist is healing nicely but no driving for another seven weeks .. it must be done not so?
Have a super weekend everyone
much love
