I don’t know why, but I’ve been reluctant to commit to making a blanket with this pattern. I think I took the leap last night when I started making a bunch of the middles. I know I’ll love it when it’s done. I just hate starting projects and then not finishing them so I’m trying to put more thought into it before plunging in. I’m definitely NOT making 100 squares like the one in the previous post. She must have used sport or DK weight yarn that made smaller squares. I’m going to email her and ask her a bunch of questions. At 10.5” inches each, I’ll probably make 25 or so and then add a nice wide border. That’s my thinking at this point, but we’ll see.
Speaking of making the middles, when you make a blanket out of squares (or any other project that requires multiple squares), how do you make yours? Do you make all the middles first? Do you crochet each square to completion before moving on to the next? Which way works best for you?
I’ve found that making the first two rounds of each granny square or the middle circle of each square first works best for keeping me motivated to finish. It just doesn’t seem as daunting a task once you have those middles all stacked up in a basket waiting for you. I’m just curious how everyone else does it and why.
I’m excited for the Daytona 500 tomorrow! I’m making a big pan-full of chicken & cheese stuffed jalapenos today so all I have to do is bake them tomorrow. YUM!
Okay, have a wonderful weekend, y'all!
