Work in Progress: Granny Square Blanket, The Beginning
Well, I started. Again. A granny square blanket.. Do you think I can do it? I hope so! As of right now, I have 12 completed squares and six half completed squares. So, uh.. only about 160+ left plus construction. BUT. Come on. I can do it, riiiiight?
Good thing I finished this gigantic bag, huh? I bought two skeins each of six colors (so far), plus two skeins of my border color, and it fits all 14 of those with probably room for 14 more. I'm glad to have the bag to hold all of that plus the finished motifs.
A stack of finished squares. I haven't blocked these yet.. Not looking forward to it. I'm thinking of buying one of those clear, big rectangle ruler things, so I can make sure they are exactly 4" by 4" each.
I am definitely happy with the blue I chose for the border color. I cannot WAIT to see what they look like when I get 50, 100, and more. They are so fun and quick to make, the only thing that is getting me is weaving in the ends. Have you crocheted a blankie? What were your dimensions? I want it to be larger than a throw, but we'll see how many squares I can bust out in the next few months.
