{Granny blanket} Tally count


I had a bit of a lightbulb moment when my crochet mentor visited recently and commented on the tightness of my crochet! It didn’t surprise me – I’m a tense person so it seems natural I’d transfer this to my hooking. Since then I’ve concentrated on loosening my stitches and the resulting squares are only marginally bigger, but sit flat instead of curling up at the edges. I figure they will all balance out when I finally come to join them, but for now I’m finding the looser hooking much quicker and easier, and unsurprisingly I’m not getting as much cramp in my fingers!

Current total is 83. Another 61 to go, unless I decide to make the blanket bigger…

    Love those colour combinations! Where did you get your wool?

      Thanks – the colours are inspired by a rug we have. All the wool came from John Lewis – a lot of the colours are by Debbie Bliss, but they were all in the sale so are being discontinued. I’m sure they’ll be replaced with similar though.
