So, 140 little squares later my blanket is finished. Sewing the squares together was not difficult, but it was tedious and it left a million little ends to deal with. I never really feel good about the ends hanging out, even if I have weaved them in, but oh well. That’s what makes something handmade.
Since I altered the color scheme I really didn’t know how this blanket would turn out. But I have to say, I love it. It achieved the effect I wanted, which was a blanket that was both old school and modern.
I’m now formulating some ideas for more granny square projects, possibly even some to sell.
