squared up

A finished project!!!  I've had to finish off my 2010 Block-A-Month Crochet-A-Long early.  I didn't even make up all of the squares, but I think we have a mutual agreement, my squares and I.  "Don't drag this any longer than you need to!" they shout out to me.  "Finish us off and put us to good use!"  

A few days before Ramadan starts is good timing, I think, seeing as there is a bit of a de-clutter and clean up operation underway.  


It isn't exactly what I had in mind back in January.  I left some squares out.  The colours changed!  And it's not that I didn't enjoy crocheting them.  A CAL is a great way to experiment with stitches.  I just have too many other things going on!  

Enough rambling!  

Here it is ... 

The whole thing ...

More of a lap blanket or a Little Person's Blanket at 36 by 36 inches.  I don't usually "do" Imperial but that was a nice, easy-to-remember, round figure.

I've used Hayfield Bonus DK for this blanket, which, I find, is a pretty good acrylic yarn.

The squares have been joined using the Flat Braid Joining method.

The blanket will probably live on the back of a sofa until a)it's a little cooler or b)the kids want to play super heroes or c)the kids want to play tents!

Jenni asked about a pattern, so I'll go one better and list them all here :)

Bottom row, left to right: Tilt-A-Whirl, Sun Daze, Eternal Braid Square

Now, I can get on with this new cotton project without feeling guilty.  So much for my new WIP policy!

There's a little link party at AnneMarie's Brieblog, where this post is linked up.  You can join and add something that you've made every Saturday and have a look at other lovely creations!
