I'm STILL going on the granny square blanket. It's almost finished. Joining the squares is becoming quite tedious so I am only doing one row at a time - and not very often! I've joined all the vertical rows and half of the horizontals - so it's nearly there. I just wish I had more hours in the day - don't we all? We're just finishing 2 weeks of school & uni holidays today and I thought I would have had some nice cold wet autumn days to sit inside and happily crochet away. But we've had almost 2 full weeks of glorious warm sunny days. I'm not complaining at all - it was nice to be able to spend lots of time doing outside things :)
Here is another reason I've been a little slow to finish the granny blanket! I've learned not to have more than one big project on the go. But when I came across the pattern for these star granny squares I couldn't wait to give them a try. I found the pattern in The Art of Crochet. I'm really happy with how they are turning out. They are quite easy to do too.
