Joined up

Remember these? My pile of granny squares at last has a purpose – it’s becoming a blanket for a friend’s soon-to-arrive little one. I’ve joined them using Lucy at Attic24’s fabulously easy to follow tutorial, then worked a row of dc all around the edge.

The finished result is smaller than I’d hoped (how on earth do people make enough squares for a king-size bed?), but perfect for a pram or cot.

Choosing an edging was tricky – more dc, picot, or something fancier? In the end I went with the Shell Edging from Craftsy, which is beautifully easy to work but gives a pretty finishing touch. If you ignore all the ends to weave in (which I’m doing my best to), it’s nearly done!
