Another one of my sweet childhood friends Steve married the love of his life Hannah in a beautiful wedding ceremony! Their colors were various shades of dark pink and burgundy and the tuxes were gray. It was gorgeous and we had an amazing time. This is the last big blanket I’ve been able to do because my hands have gotten a bit sad and sore, but I have lists and am slowly catching up on all the happy days that have happened since Steve and Hannah’s!!
I again chose to try a Granny Square but decided to graduate to three colors… I know, I got bolder!!
I have a weird way of doing things – I like to do at least one full square, like so:
And then I like to do all of the squares I need in stages. So I plot out the design, do the math, then, I’d do all of the white centers, followed by attaching the red to all of the white, and then the gray, and so on, until all of the squares are finished! So, it looks something like this:
I keep all the yarn and all the squares in an easy-to-carry tote so everything stays all nice, tidy, and organized!
I decided that I liked the look of Melody and Alex’s teal and brown blanket a lot, so I chose to replicate the design with some changes. That meant some plain gray squares as well.
Here are some images of the squares being set out and the start of using the invisible seam to attach them together!
I began these crochet projects before I moved in to The Burrow. These staged photos were taken in my first solo apartment, the Hobbit Hole! It was a basement apartment with no patio. The windows were right at ground level and I had lots of creepy, crawly guests (they were not my favorite visitors, and I screamed a lot…). However, it was a good first place to live.
I finished Steve and Hannah’s blanket over the course of a snowstorm we called the snowpocalypse. We had many days off from school and I watched True Detective twice in a row! I was pleased with the way it turned out and I couldn’t wait to get it in the mail to my sweet, happily married friends!
I can’t wait to, however slowly, continue this tradition!
I was a freshman in college moving into the dorms. Across the hall, this girl…
Another amazing friend from high school was tying the knot with her high school sweetheart…
