this week's blanket


Last week was all about crocheting daisies, so it's only fair that this week features knitting these beautiful squares. Fourteen squares are done, the fifteenth is about halfway and the final sixteenth square should be completed tonight. And, unless my evening schedule goes horribly off the rails, there should still be enough time to sew in all the ends and block them.

Mattress stitching them together might have to wait for the weekend though. That feels like a task best tackled by a well rested, calm, fully alert morning person. As I've learned through hard experience, how nicely the seaming is done directly impacts my happiness with the finished project. So I'm definitely going to take my time to do it right ... no matter how eager I am to see the finished blanket!

I agree --- seaming really matters.

The square are beautiful.

I love your blanket squares! Sewing them together is daunting though. I did a blanket last year doing a flat braided type of crochet to assemble them and I was very happy with the results. It is a little bit forgiving if the squares are not all the same size, which is not a problem in your case with your gorgeous squares. Good luck with the sewing :)

happy knitting :)
