granny squares galore


My crochet blanket has turned into a bit of a combined effort with me and my mum. I crochet granny squares galore and she has the not-so-fun job of stitching them all together (I do love her!). So far it is approximately 1 metre square but I am hoping to make it around 1.5 x 2.5 metres. We shall see how long my fingers can keep going!

It looks so fabulous. I love the colour scheme too. I'm sure it will be worth working it to the size you want.

Hey I am so jealous that your Mum joins all the squares together. I am in the process of doing that right now and it's tres tres boring.
All I want to do is have them all joined so that I can get busy on crocheting a border, I am an addict! Damn my RSI......
