I thought I’d pop in a quick update on my granny square blanket before the weekend. I’m finally joining squares!
Commenters on the last post about this project recommended Carina’s excellent tutorial for this double-crochet joining method. I love how it looks! The purple needed a little extra width, and the join adds just enough.
(Apologies for the bad photo.)
Since we’re having no summer to speak of here in PDX, I’ve been able to work on this wool-based baby most days without discomfort. (This climate state of affairs is awesome when I want to work on my blanket, but the cause of much whining by me the rest of the time. I’m fickle that way when I need to wear my fleece in July.)
Some days, though, I’m not allowed to work on it at all.
This is not only my first blanket, it’s the first crochet project in my history that has progressed this far without turning hideous in my hands. When it’s done, I may just carry it around with me, Linus-style.
Happy Weekend, everyone!
