{Granny blanket} Progress report

I’ve found my groove when it comes to the granny blanket now. It got put aside for a couple of weeks as I worked on a gift for a new baby, but now my focus is firmly back on my squares (if you discount lengthy sessions on Pinterest dreaming of my next project). My current total is 46 which isn’t bad and from it taking me a whole evening to complete one square, now I easily knock off three in an evening. I’ve also learnt to get into the habit of sewing in the loose ends regularly (I do it at the end of each session).

Recently I’ve been playing around with the colour combinations, so that as well as the three colours per square (plus the off-white border), I’ve tried squares with two colours and one colour. The single colour squares came in a week I felt so exhausted my brain just wouldn’t compute colour combinations so I gave up and just did one colour. I’m actually really pleased with them, and will definitely be doing more to drop into the blanket as a whole.

We’re away this week (a glamorous week at Center Parcs in Whinfell) so I intend to be hooking every evening. Long live crochet.

    You need to start learning to weave the ends in as you go – absolutely life changing (was convinced you couldn’t for granny squares but found a way and means no more end sewing in fear!)

    It is looking great. Have you worked out how many squares you will need in total?
