My blanket has gone really well. I finally finished my granny squares and was ready to attach. Before I attached the granny squares to the blanket I single crocheted them all together and made a “panel”. Then I laid out the blanket and the panel and hooked yarn through in a few spots just to make sure it would stitch together evenly.
If you look closely you can see the strings from where I pinned the blanket and panel together with yarn.
My cat decided to help me out. He kept pawing under the panel, you know, just to make sure nothing was hiding under there.
One panel attached!! I really like the look. I actually have the second panel attached now too. All I have left for this blanket is a border. It really needs a border too because the single stitch section of the blanket makes it very stretchy. It just needs a little more structure on the bottom and top.
And that’s where I’m stuck. The border. It’s all I have left. Just two more half-double crochet rounds around the entire blanket and I’m officially finished. I just can’t seem to make myself pick it back up and FINISH! I could blame it on the weather. It’s been hot here and working with a blanket on my lap just isn’t appealing. Really though other projects have caught my attention and they are just more fun! Anybody else have that problem? I don’t want to finish the boring…I love starting new projects!
I’ll get it finished soon though. It’s on my list. I’ll post pictures when I do.
Thanks for reading! Tell me all about your hard-to-finish projects!
