Buckeye Blitz in the Works

Making some good headway with Buckeye Blitz Afghan.  As you can see, comparing this picture with the one in the previous post.  I like how the black is adding more contrast; but in measuring this in it's current stage....don't believe the additional row of black is going to be enough to get the size needed. 

Have considered adding more gray, but also have a lighter gray.  Have considered adding another row of white ....think that might make things pop even more?  Current supply of black in my stash makes me think I might not have enough to just keep adding black....Am in the pondering stages. 

A lady at work who used to knit and crochet, always likes to see my projects and she thinks black is the way to go.  Might be making a yarn purchase, though that seems crazy given the already bulging shelves I have....stay tuned.

Work in Progress Wednesday badges and links in tab across the top of the blog marked Meme's....join in, it's fun.


  1. I like the black, it's worth the extra investment. You can always use more black in your stash.

  2. Yep, you are moving right along with the Buckeye blanket. The last post I seen you only had 2 with the gray.

  3. Your progress is coming along nicely! Keep at it, and you'll be done in no-time.

  4. Looking good. Agree with black but have you got something that is something between navy blue and royal blue? Just a thought.

  5. Thanks Jeanne, Marsha, Michelle, and Paulineknit for your visits and comments, both are appreciated. I dug deeper and found black I didn't know I had so am continuing with the black idea. Don't have a shade of blue that would work Pauline, plus want to keep with The Buckeye Theme, so think I'm back on track.

  6. I also agree with the black, but I also like how it looks already too. I really find myself drawn to the pattern. Also, I totally understand your dislike of smartphones and mobile phones in general, I harbor what can only be called hatred for Verizon after all of the crap they have put me through. But I also have a psychological disorder that is partially managed by strict organization and time management, my smartphone has allowed me to make some huge positive changes in my life. The fact that I don't have to lug my dSLR around to take photos is just a nice perk.

  7. I like the black, but another row of white might work as well. It will be quite stunning once you are done!

    happy holidays :)
