I’ve been merrily crocheting the edges of each coloured alternative granny target square in cream, in groups of 5 at a time. I’ve completed the last today and now have 100. Hurray! Gold medal in crochet for Team GB please :-D
But how can it have happened that I now have 100 squares worth of ends to darn? Oh how can this have happened again??? I thought I’d learnt back in May that to darn as you go is the very best thing….
Sorry Brits, I think I might have put us out of the medal category. Boo!
These look scrummy! So wish I could crochet!
It’s my pet hate too, darning in the ends!
Lol! I am having the very same problem with my current crochet project too! Not like me eh? I was just too excited and wanted to get on with it and get it done I didn’t want to waste time darning in the ends. So now I am having to plough through it so I can put the finishing touches to it. It is much smaller than your 100 squares though – phew!
This made me smile, I know the feeling :-)
I’m the same I love doing the squares and then i have to sew it together! usually get my mum to do it for me lol
I took a vow long ago, finish the ends as you go! Saves a lot of headache. I think I actually have a project packed away somewhere, unfinished! What a sad story! lol
I find it a job to do in company when you can be distracted by other people from the tedium. My friends are used to me taking my crochet everywhere!
But the squares look sooooo pretty ! The combination of colors is just brilliant!
When I make squares I weave the ends in while I’m crocheting so this way I usually only have the very last color to sew in… ( You can see that in a small tutorial that I put on my blog)
This blanket will be gooooorrrrgeouss! :)
Those squares are amazing – so pretty. Loving the colours. I can’t wait to see the finished blanket!
Maybe leaving out the ends is not a bad thing – are they long enough to use for sewing the squares together just as they are? =D
they are so neat and lovely. cant wait for the finished product!
