What started out 7 weeks ago as a one-square-a-day project,
My first 20 squares were crocheted in St Francis Bay while we were on holiday. Nothing better to do, with the weather wet and windy.
Then I crocheted some more, feeling totally inspired by the colours of the yarns in my stash. I didn’t buy any extra yarns for THE BLANKET. It wasn’t necessary with so much Vinnis Nikkim, Serina and Bambi, some Cowgirl Blues, little bits of Family Knit in grey, Charity’s Tiger Cerise, some Premier Cotton and even a delicious Mustard yellow from One-of-a-kind yarns.
THE BLANKET was the perfect expression of spring …
I spent many late afternoons working on the squares, in the company of my darling George,
Then there was the weekend in Cullinan, with friends, remember?
At last I had 88 squares, ready to be joined,
My only problem was HOW to join them:
sew the squares together,
or crochet them together.
I decided on crocheting them together, because I felt that this would reflect the desired movement and tension that I wanted from the blanket better.
As you can see, it’s a massive job.
and … it … goes … very … slowly …
My hopes are high to finish joining before we go on holiday.
