Roses granny square progress

My granny blanket is progressing slowly…very slowly (or at least it seems that way!).

So far I’ve made it to 14 x 13 rows of small granny squares. The amount of ends I will have to fasten off at the finish is terrifying…and the blanket still looks teeny to me!

It just seems to be growing at a snails pace. 13 x 14 rows of squares means I have made 182 squares so far, and I feel like it needs to be at least twice as big to be of a decent size. Is it ok to admit as a crochet blogger that I am kinda sick of granny squares right now?! Well I am!

I may have to put this to one side for a little and come back to it when I’ve got over my granny square inertia. Either that or I’ll have to consider making this small granny square square the centre of the blanket and giving it a really deep border make up of rows of granny square stitching going right the way around. It wasn’t my original plan for this blanket, but…Hmmm. I think I’ll mull it over for a little while while I work on something different. Maybe I should work up another one of those mats which I showed in a recent post, with the lacy edging. I was asked about a pattern for that and have been meaning to share some details. I will try and do it soon, promise! I am just too lazy and procrastinate-y at the moment.

Apart from that I’ve been enjoying the end of summer. We’re in the middle of a mini heat wave here this week, 30 degrees. I’ve also treated myself to a little sparkly something, from a local store.

I love costume jewellery and I love finding things in independent stores rather than the big chains. I don’t know why, but the kinds of things I see there are so much more me than most of what you find in the high street names. Independents seem to stock more delicate, classic things as opposed to on trend stuff. I am really not a trendy person and have no pretension or desire to be!

Have a great end to your week, enjoy the sun!

  1. Hi! I have a question about one of your posts in blogger from August 21, 2013 – monochrome & colour crochet. I posted my question there but I’m not sure if you keep up with your former blog. Sorry to tag along with this post – feel free to delete this comment once you’ve seen it!
    Anyway, I was just wondering what yarn you used or if you could tell me the weight/fiber. I’m an intermediate crochet level but I have a terrible time sorting out how to choose a good yarn to get the proper results. Also, if there’s a pattern for that blanket I would love if you could point me to it!
    Many, many thanks!
