Well it is finished for now, and in use!
I completed 24 bands of colour which is 48 rounds of crochet.
I really believe it will look better if it finishes with a pink round of colours rather than the yellow/purple that it is at the moment.
Also another 4 bands of colour will give it a bit more length.
But for now, even though it is way too hot for this heavy crochet blanket, it is in use! and that makes both of us very happy!
