Sometimes I find myself working on something and it seems to take forever. Other times I pick my hook and yarn up and suddenly I have almost an entire completed object in my hands! That is what has happened with this granny square blanket. It won’t be a very big blanket, lap rug size or something a toddler can drag around. But I’m happy with how it is coming together, and it is already coming together – half the squares are joined and I will be able to join the rest very quickly and then think about a border.
The yarn is a very soft acrylic, it’s been such a pleasure to make … I started this only two weeks ago.
This is the first time I have ever joined crochet squares in this way. It is a “Simulated Braid Join” from Gourmet Crochet, here is a link if you would like to try. I really like the way it looks, and is a big change from my usual whip stitch!
Tomorrow night is craft night with the girls at the local community centre. Last week I was only part way through making squares, I’m looking forward to showing them how much more I have done now. Yes, I am a show off, are you surprised to learn this now?
