I think it looks really a lot nicer without the black background in many ways but as I continue to add more and more rows and step back from it, it is getting prettier. I think it is one of those blankets that you will need to step back from a bit to enjoy. I still am having fun with it and in my mind as I near the bottom of adding rows, I am looking at my basket full of yarn and trying to decide what I want to make next. I want to make something fun and colorful (and less dark) for spring.
I hope to be able to show it off within a week or two!
So what do you think dear reader? Do you like it? Hate it? I am still a bit on the fence about it.
