Just in case anyone thought I had abandoned the granny square, I haven’t. It remains the staple PASSENGER SEAT car craft (nothing dashed off at red traffic lights) and from everyone’s perspective, a win-win. Much to the relief of all, the irritating back seat driving tendencies take, well, a back seat when I’m lost in trebles.
When last I bloggily checked in with my circle-in-a-square blanket, this was the state of play:
Three-ish months on, this is where things are at now:
Still a somewhat draughty blanket and with barely a loose end woven in (ugh), I’m 142 squares down with 56 squares yet to happen. I confess I’m experiencing the beginnings of ‘antsy’. I can crochet these squarelets blindfolded with both hands tied behind my back. I may have an impatient eye on that final push to the finish line (oh, how breezily I waft over all that end-weaving bizzo).
Not that I have a clue quite how to manage that finish line bit once I’m there. I don’t think I want a ridge where the squares join (do I want a ridge where the squares join?) and if I don’t, is my half lorry load of cream yarn enough (knew I should have stockpiled the entire lorry), to achieve some alternative fancy pants solution? All fancy pants solutions heartily welcomed...
