It's been a long journey after teaching myself to crochet a few years back and getting tips off other people via Facebook and Pinterest has helped me a lot. So now my granny blanket is almost finished, just the last six squares are being joined this afternoon.
I love sitting in the sunshine making granny squares, to be able to enjoy my blanket on cooler days. It's a brilliant project to carry around too. I've made granny squares all over Kent. At work, blue water, my parents, the garden, the park, in a traffic jam!!
It's a lot of work too, all those ends to sew in. After I'd completed about 50 squares I read an article talking about sewing in as you go, now that was a breakthrough for me. It's so tempting to skip this and start another one, but patience is what you need and it's so much quicker in the end when you've done this. I've kept a jam jar with the ends I've sewn in so far, it's full. Hopefully by tonight I will be working on the border.
