Nanafghan

Been working on an project for a while now, only reason its taken so long is due to the usual distractions of family life! It’s an afghan for my mother-in-laws birthday!! I really need to get a move on though cause it’s on the 26th!!

It’s this pattern, Homespun crochet squares afghan

which I found on Ravelry

It’s my first large project… I like how it’s done in strips as I think I would be overwhelmed with doing it all in one go & granny squares make me nervous!! I know they are what you should start with, but my first crochet was this fellow..

I dive right in at the deep end!!

I think I will finish the afghan after the last 3 squares.. It’s big enough for a lap blanket & she’s a wee woman! My only problem now is figuring out how to attach them together!! Happy joy joy!!

Edit: that awkward moment when you go back to something & can’t remember how to do the stitch!! Not only that, you mind goes a total blank on how to do any bloody stitch!! Is it too early for some rum…?

  1. Single crocheting squares together is the way to go! My blanket had tiny squares, it was a royal pain in the bum as I used black wool and couldn’t see my stitches! I freestyled some together, sewed some, and crocheted some. Small chuncks are definitely good, I haven’t touched the blanket for two months cause I’m on the edges, and they take tooooo long!

  2. I never thought of colour… Hmm…. I might pick a totally random colour to join!! Something multicoloured…lol
    I’d seen people using single crochet to join, and sewing… I can’t be bothered sewing it all!! Still need to remind myself how to half double crochet!! I only did a bit of it last week… This is the problem with mutil-projecting… Should really stick to one thing at a time… 🙂
