As you know, during the summer school vacation I worked on a crocheted bedspread for our queen size bed. I soon had the required number of granny squares which I joined to form rows.
These rows were soon joined to one another. The blanket quickly became big and heavy. To avoid getting hot, I placed the work next to me so that I would not get too uncomfortable.
My last decision was to decide on how to work the border. Deciding to continue with the granny square motif, I alternated the colours of my choice.
For the last row, I tried a curved edge. I liked the look of it, and decided to stay with my first choice.
Once the last stitch had been made and the final piece of thread worked away, I carried the work to my bedroom and laid it on my bed.
My family and I admired the result – my daughters called the blanket cosy. The room has a different look to it now. Now when the cooler days arrive, my husband and I will have something warm with which to cover ourselvest.
Have you completed a project during the summer/winter? What was it?
I decided to pick up the hook again after eight years – that is, the crochet hook. My hands had been itching to do a little something creative so I decided to begin a project with the wool I had on hand.
I decided to make granny squares using two colours: lilac and white. I decided on eight rows per square which I felt would suit the size of my project.
I began to crochet a little in the morning when I was ready and had a few moments before I went to work. I took a little time after supper as well to get in a few rows.
Slowly the pile of granny squares grew. I procrastinated in joining them as I was trying to remember how I had done this before.
I did not worry, though, as I knew it would be a long while before I needed to begin joining. My intention was to make a bedspread for our queen size bed – and I would need plenty of squares for that!
