The dance is nearly over...

Feeling significantly better from the vertigo attack I had last Tuesday (and struggling until mid-Thursday, getting better each day) I managed to finish four more squares by last night:


I decided to try making random bobbles again and it worked better for me this time.  These represent hailstones, though I have no idea how these squares will actually translate to the viewer once the blanket is all stitched together.  They may just look like random bobbles.  I'm cool with that.

And now...  one more set of squares to go!  I almost can't contain my giddiness at being nearly done!


These navy squares are possibly going to be a combination of designs of other easy squares I've already done.  For one thing, I'm finding out navy is hard to crochet with, so I'm not interested in struggling with both a pattern that isn't easy and struggling to also see my yarn.  Secondly, I really just want to get this blanket done already.  I'm not in love with it anymore and I just want to start stitching it together.  I think I'll like it well enough when it's finished, but will I love it?  I'm letting go of any such expectations I might have had when I began this thing.

As soon as I sign off here, I'm going to lay out the squares I have to date to get an idea of what this baby is going to look like.


Hopefully, next week will see some progress on the joining of these 48 squares.

  1. Glad to hear the vertigo has subsided.

    I like the hailstorm squares. I can hardly believe we will be seeing it all laid out next week.

    Dark yarn is not for the faint of heart. When I look at my stash I see almost all the dark yarn is gone now. I gave quite a bit away lol.

    1. I know, I can hardly believe I've stuck with this project. I can't wait until I can't believe I've finally finished it. lol

  2. Random bobbles - so fun! And hailstones are definitely consistent with the weather we've been seeing around here. If you don't love your blanket right away move onto other things before taking a second look. Sometimes you need a little time and distance ...

    1. Actually, laying it out last night I got what I think is a brilliant idea. And I'm back to loving it. We'll see as it comes together! I'm excited (and scared) to begin joining!

  6. I'm glad you're feeling better and are able to crochet. I like this blue you're working with. It's dynamic to the eye.
