I've finished a few more blankets:

This one reminds me of toothpaste:


I really like the purple in this one:

Now that is progress! I really like the sort of ladvendarish color, it's really pretty. What sort of edging do these have on them?

It depends on how much yarn I have left, but I usually just do a few rounds of dc for the edging.

Alright, so I made a bit more progress this weekend while at a party. I didn't feel TOO anti-social, because people were playing Wii and stuff, and I was able to chit chat along, because now I am verrrrrry used to what stitches I need to do now hah!



So it's looking a little off-center. I think bc it's 100% acrylic, I can not block it. Is there anything else I can do, or should I just not stress out too much about it? The off-centerish is the middle...the edges look a little weird in the pic, but that's mainly because they are curled up a bit.

Figured I'd join you guys since I finished making my first baby blanket for Project Linus and have started the second.

Sorry for the bad camera phone picture.  I made this using 2 strands of Lion Brand Wool-Ease held together throughout. It's very thick and soft.  The pattern was simple, fun, and fast.

The one I'm making now is in Chicago Bears colors, and the pattern is a big "no holes" granny square from a Leisure Arts book "Snuggle Squares."  I'm on round 17 of 43, but of course they're getting progressively larger.

Nope, not hard at all.  It's the same thing.. just takes a little longer.

It's a lot like this pattern (http://www.geocities.com/alyssa5000/jane.html).  In fact, exactly like it except the corners.  My pattern alternates from:

(2dc, ch1, 2dc) in corner stitch

to

3dc in corner ch1 space.


It just changes every other round to make the corner holes happen only every other round.
And obviously you just keep going in the same manner instead of finishing off at the end of that pattern. Tongue

I love granny square blankies, but I think these are a tad more baby friendly since there aren't hundreds of holes for fingers to poke through Smiley


Yours is really cute Smiley  As far as it being off center, I think they tend to straighten out more the larger they get, especially after they're washed.  So don't fret too much over it!

It looks to me that you have the same thing goin' on as my friend Amy. I taught her how to make granny squares, and everyone she does has a little turn to it. I went over everything with her, and she is doing everything exactly as I am. We can not figure it out. I think her squares are still beautiful, and that is like her signature, a little turn to her square. I think yours is wonderful too (I love the colors) don't worry about it, keep going!! The beauty of handmade items is that everyone's is a little different, a little turn to your granny square maybe means your not a "square" person Smiley Good job. Don't worry about the ends curling, mine curl too with a little smoothing & over time they will lay down more Smiley
