YAY all the ends are sewn in and I am ready to join WOO HOOOOO
The row on the right hand side are left overs, I will have 13 x 13 squares and I have 9 left over just in case I need to swap a few around :) When I started making the granny squares I didn't have a number in my head that I wanted to make, I just kept making them.... the pile on the side of the couch (sofa/settee) was getting bigger and bigger and then I got to that point of **If I make another granny square I think I may just go crazy** That is when I knew it was time to stop :)
I really enjoyed making all the square's, it was not for a video so there was no RUSH to get it finished, the colors were so much fun to put together and I tried to use colors that i would normally put together
I will be using this blanket as color inspiration when I get stuck, so many different combinations
My rules when I was making the squares - hmm rules sounds to strict, more like guidelines
1) I could not put a dark color next to another dark color
2) No white and cream in the same square
3) Try not to make any 2 squares the same
I did the square in stages - I would make a stack of centers, about 20 or until I sick of making them heehee then I would do all the second rounds, then all the third rounds .... and the I would repeat the process :)
I averaged about 40 squares every 2 days - Looking after mum was a full time thing, being the taxi to and from appointments, cooking and helping around the house.... there were also many hours of just sitting with mum and chatting, I cant sit and chat and do nothing so the granny squares were a great way to pass the time
To be continued ........
