1  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: ACTIVE: GRANNY-A-DAY APRIL *A YEAR OF GRANNIES* Start: 4/1/2011 on: April 10, 2011 07:02:11 PM
leave it to the hubby to make more work for me. i showed him the progress on my blanket and he gave me a few criticisms. i was only 24 5 in squares away from finishing. now i am 77 squares away. i am adding another row on each side, making it 13 squares wide and it will stay 14 squares long. he asked if i could make squares that are half blue and half yellow, i said i could try. and then he upped the anti by saying that i need to do 1 square that is 1/4 yellow and 3/4 blue and another one that is 1/4 blue and 3/4 yellow. to make the M in the blanket look more realistic. so i will be working on it for a bit longer than anticipated.

on a side note, i've only done solid color squares. so if anyone has any tips on how to do multi color squares, i would appreciate it.

i'm always in for a month of grannies. even after i get this blanket done, which i'm hoping will be some time this month (got fingers crossed lol), i like making grannies, they are fun and simple and i'm looking forward to experimenting with them more than i've been able to so far Cheesy

just completed another row!! it seems to take forever to make up the squares and only minutes to sew it onto the blanket. this means 4 more rows and i'm done with the squares and can just do finishing touches.. i might do a border around the whole thing. not sure yet. could do a yellow border on it

youtube is wonderful. i never imagined they would have videos like that on there. it's where i got the pattern for the squares i'm using in kota's blanket. just bought a brand new skein of yarn tonight so hopefully this will be the last one i need to buy for this blanket lol

i got 2 squares done today. been going kinda slow here lately cuz the hubby is home.. wish he would go back to work (he's a over the road trucker).. also took a couple hours to make a hat for myself lol.

nfirehazzard, i would be interested in the pattern for the solid square. the ones i am working on are semi-solid, they still have holes in the corners where i dc2 ch2 dc2 then work the side. are you just not doing the ch2?
