Granny Square blanket update

Hello everyone, I hope you have all had a great week.

I’m sad to report that it’s been slow progress on my granny square blanket. Last week flew by in a flash and when I’m not working I seem to be doing wedding-related stuff. Who knew planning something like that would take so much time?!

Anyway, I have made some progress with my granny squares. I have decided to use Attic24’s really great and simple method to join my squares, but as they are a rainbow of different colours I felt like they needed tidying up a bit first.

I decided to single crochet a border around them in an off-white colour yarn, which I will then use to stitch them together. I’m hoping this will give me a neater finish as the joining stitches won’t show.

Here are the ones I have done so far:

Granny squares with white border

A comparison of a square with a border and without a border. I think with a border looks neater:

Border and no border

I managed to do eight squares today after a morning of chores and before going to work for a late shift and hopefully I will be able to do some more in the coming week. I hate not having time to craft!

Slowly, slowly makes a blanket!
