a quick status update on blankie

Believe it or not, 80 squares are now done! I'm slower than I hoped, but not too surprised - I always hope I'll get more done than I can. I've introduced some more colours since the last update - but have been quite frustrated in my search for a good range of colours in cotton yarn. Does no-one else find wool itchy?

At this stage I am planning to do the final join-as-you-go round in the same grey that edges all of the squares. I think introducing white at this stage would be a bit jarring, or better suited if it was a babies blanket. Here's a quick photo of my stacks of squares - there are ten squares per stack, and then I'd better get back to it!


  1. Ooh I love your colours! I'm only 30 squares in and I've already run out of nice colours. Mixy mis-matchy it is!

  2. You're doing great! They look fab.

  3. The colours are so lovely. Relaxing & calm. And 80 squares is great!!

  4. Great colour scheme! They remind me of a stormy day by the sea, when a blanket like this would come in handy. Yeah and if i knit at all i only use acrylic or cotton.

  5. gorgeous colours Michelle! looking good!


Love to hear what you think!
