Start & finish...

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.

Back to uni for me tomorrow which means a busy couple of months ahead. Hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in a bit a creative time every now and then!
