done joining squares!

I’m finished joining my afghan squares!  Turns out it is a little smaller than I thought it would be, probably due to my usage of a smaller hook to sc the squares together (which was done on the back of the piece).  I meant to have nice tight joins but I overdid it a bit and it shrunk the overall size of the thing.  I have a feeling it will stretch out with usage — it’s a very heavy blanket!  I still have to add the border, so I’m not finished yet, but I wanted to share my progress with you because I’m excited to be done with joining the squares (usually the most tedious part of afghans, in my opinion).  So here are the pictures!

You can see in that first one where I’ve been sitting on the edge, listening to The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey on iTunes (which is a very good book, by the way).

And there you can see the joins close up!  I think it looks pretty neat, if I do say so myself.  🙂  Now on to put on the border!


  1. Looks great!


  2. Oh, its lovely! I can’t wait to see the border added. And you’re right, the blanket will stretch a bit as it’s used. I love the colours you chose, especially the green. I really look forward to seeing what you do with the border 🙂

    You did an absolutely fantastic job! so very pretty girl!


  4. A border will enlarge it a bit and make it look more finished.
    Nice blog.
    I look forward to seeing the finished blanket. 🙂


  5. Great job! I understand how tedious joining is; I really don’t enjoy that task either.

    Beautiful pattern, i think I might try the squares and make a handbag.

    Ta Ta for now, Cathy the Bagg Lady
