WIP - More Granny Stripes

Well, there I am, crocheting away on my Granny Stripes. It's getting bigger. In fact, my journey with the stripes is drawing to a close. I laid the thing on the bed last night, and it's about big enough. I think just one more repeat of the colors will do it. That will be about 78 inches of stripes. Then, I have the border left, and I am still trying to decide which will be the perfect border. I'm looking through the book Around The Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman to try to find the border I want. I kind of have an idea of what I want, just haven't made my final decision. Anyway, first I've got to get these stripes finished. I'm anxious to have this thing done. It's so pretty, I can't wait to get it on my bed.

I'm linking up with Marie Anne at Every Day Crochet for WIP Wednesday. Come on over there and see what everybody else is making. I'm headed there from here.

The colors in that granny stripe are gorgeous - great job!

No, the flapper hat pattern isn't my own. I started with a pattern I found online and modified it a bit.
