All about blankets

It has been ages since I've blogged about the blankets I'm making for my girls. They are coming along, slowly but surely. This is the first crocheted blanket I've made, having previously made several quilts for them. What was your first blankie project? send me photos so I can post them in the blog!

there are so many wonderful patterns and examples out there!

A colorful vintage vertical stripe pattern at Bella Dia, meant to be made from scraps!

Another of these mesmerizing blankets like Dawn made , this time from Linda

By the way, Dawn sure comes from a very talented family! check out her grandmas' blankets, and then check all the lovelies she makes!

And in tottally unrelated news... I'm heartbroken! well, almost... how could they do it???

Progress with the blanket

Well, I've made some progress with my crocheted granny squares blanket, but I have a problem...

I fell behind in joining the squares and now I'm comfronted with a mountain of little squares that haunt me when I close my eyes and steal my appetite...well, maybe that was too dramatic, but I do have dozens of squares yet unjoined.

Chatting with my friend Alessandra she mentioned that she likes to join them as she goes, but (and here I prove I am my own worst enemy) I like the look of hand sewn squares...

Do any of you have a technique of joining the squares that you prefer? which is it? I'd really appreciate the tips!!

And what are you crocheting right now?
