How I Work

I realised recently that it was taking me longer to choose the colours for each square I was making than it did to actually make the squares. This was holding me up a lot, and when you have half a bajillion (I just made that up) squares to make to get your blanket finished, any time saver is a good plan. So what I do now, is sit for about ten or fifteen minutes with my blanket and a notebook and make a list of what each square is going to be. I’d just like to point out that is not my normal writing, that is my “I’m sat on the bed making a list” writing , and the only person who needs to know what it means is me. It’s allowed to be messy ;-)

Then, I make all twenty circles for that row and when I have done that I attach them to the blanket. It’s saving me so much time – the only thinking I have to do is whilst making the list! Fabulous. Usually I watch a film or something on Iplayer while I work. I have now made 360 squares, and the circles in the above photo are for squares number 361 – 380.

I also got my bake on today and made snacks for my brother and sister’s school lunches. That is, if it’s not eaten by the end of the day …

I had a couple of requests for a basic granny square pattern, so I have done a little pattern for that as well. You can click here Basic Granny Square Pattern to see it, or on the left hand side of my blog. Happy hooking! xxxx
