Granny progress.

Still crocheting!! And I am making good progress. I have been crocheting my granny squares and have left everything else. The other evening we were sitting with the TV on and Dh suddenly said..'I admire your patience in carrying on with your blanket' on seeing my squares increasing. I didn't like to say out loud but I certainly thought... that's a silly thing to say, I could do this all day and all night, trouble is house work etc keeps getting in the way! LOL

I have decided not to do just granny squares in my  blanket, but to include them in a design that involves crocheting 'rounds' around them. As you can see I am now going round each square with the cream yarn. On thing to note is that I have sewn in all the ends as I go, so don't have that task to do when it is finished.

 There is no separate colour matches just very colourful. And I love deep pinks and reds so it will be bright. I can't wait to get it finished.

 Hope you too have something that you love doing.

Happy hooking!

The squares look gorgeous - so long since I picked up a crochet hook. I wonder if I will still remember what to do?

I know it's going to be gorgeous with all those beautiful squares! My crocheted blanket is in limbo right now as it's too hot to crochet a wool blanket at this time of year. Come the fall, I will finish it : )
