Crochet Granny Blanket Update

All the Colours of the Rainbow and Some .......

A while ago you may remember me showing you a stack of very colourful granny squares which I had been beavering away on, well I thought I would update you on my progress. 

So far, I have about 90 squares, 30 of which I have crocheted around with the cream yarn and joined to start forming the blanket.  I am excited as it now looks like the 'mad crochet marathon' is starting to show results and starting to resemble a blanket.

I think I am going to need a few more squares to make it fit for  'two people and her dog' as my man thinks it would be a good idea to make it larger, (to cuddle up under)! x 

I am really pleased with my achievements so far as it has been a while since I have attempted such a large project and normally I find I have a boredom threshold which extends to only small projects usually.  However, it has been relaxing to do in the evenings whilst sitting down watching the tv so good therapy as well, and the little squares haven't taken a lot of brain power so good to do whilst being poorly.

I think I have fallen back in love with crochet as it seems alot simplier to do than knitting and quicker to do.  I am sure the 'old knitting needles' will 'clack clack' again soon though when I get a calling to knit a tea cozy or something similiar.

So I will keep you informed on my progress on the blanket beauty soon.  I think it will look brilliant in my flat, on my sofa, so I can't wait to get it finished.
