Most weeks we all bring something to work on but last week I did a mini tutorial on how to join granny squares as you go. I had always found joining granny squares daunting, I love making them but the finishing off was my least favourite part and I still have a few projects waiting to be completed. This changed when I stumbled upon Irene's blog last year, Irene had made a beautiful blanket and used the join as you go method, it was based on the technique that Lucy uses. I had tried following Lucy's pattern once before and couldn't get to grips with it but Irene's inspiration made me have another go. The pattern sounds really tricky but actually it is quite straight forward, just make sure you can sit quietly and concentrate the first time you try it.
I had a bag of small granny squares from an unfinished project so I split them into groups of four and shared them out and away we went. With very little help and guidance everyone picked the method up and we quickly had a pile of joined granny squares.
I didn't want to waste these lovely squares so I have joined them all together and made a small blanket which we are going to donate. The original small squares were green and pink but they have been joined with a multitude of vibrant colours.
Not quite my colour palette but the mini blankie has come together really well.
Hope you all have a fab weekend x
