It took me a while, but I did manage to darn in all the ends eventually. Look at that! So many pretty, colorful squares.
I had enough squares for a sizable sofa afghan, and enough red yarn to actually make it. Or so I hoped…. I needed some other bright colour for the edging, though.
Luckily my mother helped me fasten off all the red ends, otherwise this blanket still wouldn’t have been done *grin*
I used a basic granny join to crochet the squares together. Easy and it just looked best for these very basic granny squares.
Because these squares were crocheted in my poor student days, I had to search my old, cheap yarn stash for enough yarn that would fit the rest of the blanket. Luckily I still had the same bright blue that I used in some of the squares, which worked perfectly for the edging.
And it’s so nice and warm!
I do love the red. It lightens it up a bit.
Have some sand.
I love the frost on the sand…
Pretty wintery colours…
Beautiful winter skies…
Though I must admit, I’m about done with winter. Come on spring, we’re waiting for you!
