My Blanket - The Beginning!

So I started crocheting my blanket!  Woo!  I was going to attempt one huge, continuous granny square but the thought of it was kind of daunting.  Instead, I'm crocheting lots of little granny squares with the intention of sewing them all together at the end!  At the moment, I'm guesstimating I'll be making a blanket that's 15 by 15 squares (which equals 225 of the little blighters - meep!) so I hope it'll be nice and big and super snuggly!  Here is a little look at how things are going so far!

I love how the wool is flecked with all different colours, it makes each of the squares interesting and completely unique!  I've got a ton of this wool (over 1kg in total!) so I know I'll have more than enough to finish my blanket!  I've made 25 squares so far and I'm really pleased; it's exciting to see how far I've come in my crocheting, how I'm able to make all of my squares pretty much uniform and consistent so I know my blanket won't be (*too*) wonky (^_^)

I hope you all have a great weekend planned!  Mine is mostly working *BOO*, lots of crocheting *YAY* and taking it easy before killer overtime next week at work *BOO AGAIN* Thanks for stopping by!



  1. That's so cute! The yarn is so pretty, and it's great that it's not solid white so that dirt won't show as much! (I know I can't keep my blankets clean for the life of me...)

    I can only knit, not crochet, and I've wanted to do a blanket for so long. I feel like if I knit it it's going to take FOREVER. I've heard crocheting is faster, so I might try to teach myself again.

  2. Brilliant. I love multicoloured and speckled wool. I think they really add interest and texture. I need to learn how to crochet don't I?
