the edge, the edge … *sings*
this granny square thing!although I was thinking: one blanket will be enough for a while, quite a while! these squares will bore me soon. they aren’t! not at all, I’m thinking about another blanket, a whitish one, I know how weird this is (again!), these squares are addicting! I have a silk yarn on cones, that I was about to through away since it was rock hard when washed and didn’t knit properly as well. it was sitting in the corner of my living room, for months! and now I look at it and see it crocheted into squares, tons of squares, all different, except the color, all beigy…and to fulfill my plan I ordered pattern books..
are there any squares you recommend? anyones you tested and found to be amazing? would you like to have some sort of crochet-along with me? like sharing the squares we’ve made throughout a week or a month? let me know,
My granny blanket is coming to an end – and I feel a weird excited happiness inside me. I grin all the time looking at the squares all laid out on the floor waiting to be crocheted together. And it’s kinda handy I still live on my own – I can lay all eighty squares right onto the floor of my living room, where nobody would could walk now (I jump) so no squares would get into a mess. Arranging them took a couple of hours and one or two nights to let the final arrangement settle on me before I finally started to join them.
crochet hugs, Diana p.s. I plan a video tutorial on my “invisible joining”
I hope you enjoyed the pattern of the small dahlia square I provided in my last post.meanwhile I’ve been to Montreux and coming home I’ve got only two squares remaining to finish all the squares for my blanket .. getting exited
Above is another view of my “leaning tower”
Looking forward a hot weekend with ice cream and joining eighty squares, how about you? Happy crocheting, Diana
I’m getting closer and closer to finishing my lovely flowery blanket, my first granny afghan ever! It will be adorable I can feel it. I have 66 squares finished, which doesn’t sound much compared to other blankets that easily sum up 200 squares but my squares are huge compared to what I see throughout the net. So my afghan will be able to cover my queensize bed when whipped up ^__^.Anyways 66 squares and trying to arrange them on the bed I knew I needed more small flower squares, which I’m making now. I first thought about only making another 6 squares (which would make 72 and 8×9 in the blanket) cause I feel a little tired making them. But really calculating and thinking about the finished piece I figured I could “force” myself to make another 8 additional squares, so I would be able to assemble 80 squares (8×10). Calculating and checking my yarn storage I need to order more green. And doing so I also ordered a few more gold skeins, just in case.. And I start to think about the edging..any ideas? this one to be the one I would like the most, it would be less visible, but being a little too picky and realizing all the ends to weave in with this method I came up with an idea that in my head right now seems even better, less weaving and no wonkyness (as Carina calls it). But I haven’t tried it yet so we will see how that works out so long, happy crocheting, Diana
