I felt a great deal of satisfaction this morning as I snipped the final ends off the granny squares in my Spring blanket.
216 squares finished.
I learned to relax about the colour placement in each square as I went along. Truly, it doesn't really matter - it's how it looks as a whole that's important. But I still think I prefer to make the squares and join them afterwards rather than joining as I go.
So now I'm crocheting the first few rounds of the border and wondering what to do for the final rounds - I'm going to have a good read of my new book before I decide.
