Yay! My squares are finally here! Here's what zombiecazz sent me.


And since we were sending overseas we decided to swap tea and chocolates as well... here's a little souvenier she send over: So cute!


I joined this swap when it first started last May, missed a couple months here and there but now... I finally have enough squares to make my blanket! I'm so excited to start joining them together (well not the actual doing, but the fact that I can) Anyone have any ideas on what color I should join them with? I'm thinking of going around them all with a sc, so that they are all bordered with the same color. Also, do you think I'll have any problems with size difference... I mean they are all '8 inches' but in reality you really can't get some perfectly square. I'm just worried about puckering and such. This is the first granny square blanket that I've ever 'made'  Wink Here's my layout so far:



Thanks for being such awesome swappers!!

I've got a hook and I'm not afraid to use it.

I'm turning my squares into a blanket right now too. I don't know if this helps, but since mine were all slightly different size wise, I made a template that was slightly bigger than the biggest square. Now I'm edging all the squares with the same color, and just making each one fit the template. (Which seemed easier than measuring for no apparent reason.) I have this sneaking suspicion it'll take me forever to actually put all of this together, but hey, it's for me, so there's no urgency Smiley

I can't believe it's been two weeks and they still haven't arrived.  Canada Post is the devil!

That's going to be a neat blanket Tygir.  I think I'd use a light gray to join, but that's me and my love of gray speaking.  Smiley  I second the template idea and I'd also probably block the squares before edging them.  That can help a bit with the rufflies and give you a more polished finish.  Good luck with the joining!

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

I'd use a dark blue or green to join.
I'm using Hot pink. I'm doing sc around each square first

Here's my squares from Tygir

Ooooh! I really like the black and red spiral and the ones made with the little circles. Are the patterns available online or in a book somewhere?

Here are my fab knitted squares from Shablina which arrived yesterday Cheesy
They are all the colours I love and lots of different patterns



The ones with raised leaf shapes in the corner are really cool! I love the blue and brown combo and the stripes, and the lacy ones - they are all lovely!



Thanks very much Shablina!
