Two Rows!

Happy 4th to everyone in the United States. I love this country!

I have two entire rows of my granny square blanket completed. That's 30 out of 250 or so squares!

Fortunately I'm attaching them to each other as I go.

Unfortunately this does not involve getting rid of all the little strings in the back.

Any tips?

Pin It!

Don't turn it over?!?!

It's looking great! I always weave in the ends as I go. That way it doesn't seem so overwhelming. A little bit here... a little bit there... done in no time!

My Granny taught me to crochet them into my work. After you have cut the yarn just lay it along the top of your previous row and crochet normally, no ends to weave!

I haven't crocheted for ages but what Diane and Jody suggested makes sense, or else it makes a good job to do in the evenings while watching/listening to tv.

I crochet them in as I go .. tho I did chuckle at Mary's suggestion above.

Your afghan is gorgeous. I have a granny square that my mom made me many, many years ago. It's a treasure.

I once made an intarsia knitted blanket which was all over hearts in squares and embroidered afterwards. I didn't know about ends . . . so I backed it with tshirt fabric and quilted with ties. Not perfect, but my little girl still loves it 11 years later.
