Crocheting Along

 
 
Well since my last crochet post I have very slowly plodded along with The Girl’s blanket and have finished crocheting the bottom half.  Its taken me 5 weeks to get the bottom part finished.  
 
I had hoped to have this blanket completely finished by the end of this month but with 9 days to go I am never going to sew all the 36 squares together and complete the blanket border.  
 
 
 
It’s clear now I don’t need to order any more yarn and should have enough to make a cushion too.
 
This isn’t how the block should be laid out in the pattern, I had very cleverly left the plan at work yesterday as I had been working on finishing the last square yesterday afternoon.
 
First job before sewing is…….drum roll please…..blocking!

    This looks like such a great undertaking and you’ve put lots and lots of work into it – I am sure you are both going to be delighted when it is all sewn up. Lovely!

    I love this – it’s like the best of granny squares and patchwork combined! Such fun colours, too, and I’ll be very interested to see how it all comes together with a border! Thanks for joining in the CAL! Chrissie x

    I love seeing a granny square blanket with all sizes of squares, they look so fun! And ick block, is it bad I very rarely block things…unless they are for other people he he!

    I love to see all those little blocks lined up together. Looks like you’ve been super busy. It’s coming along fine. Have a wonderful weekend!
