For years the only use I had for a crochet hook was picking up dropped stitches in my knitting. However, making a blanket with a crochet hook sounds more appealing than having that amount of fabric on my knitting needles, or alternatively knitting smaller pieces and then never getting around to seaming them together.
I did not plan the colors beforehand. Instead, I picked the next color based on how well it went with the previous one. Additionally, I never repeated the same color sequences, and tried to keep stripes of the same color at some somewhat even intervals. The yarns are mostly fingering weight, as is about 80-90% of my stash, with some sport weight thrown in. What kept the project interesting was seeing how the colors turned out. There are sequences I like better than others, but I do like the whole nevertheless.
