I have a good number of unfinished projects sitting around. I get all excited about starting something new so I gather the supplies and get a good start only to be waylaid by yet another new and exciting project. It's not that I don't want to finish what I started – it's that when I get tired of something or it isn't working, it's sometimes easier to set the project aside and move on to something different. Case in point: the granny square blanket.
I started this a little less than two years ago and have picked it up from time to time. I packed it up to take to jury duty last month, but it just sat in its tote bag hanging on the mudroom pegs because I never had to go to the court house. On the way out the door Friday afternoon, I grabbed it for our road trip. And wouldn't you know, I like making granny squares again.
I crocheted the better part of 12 squares on our trip. I say better part because they all need their green border. I pulled out the stack of squares previously made and was pretty amazed to count 37 completely finished. I hope to finish up the others while in the carpool line these last two weeks of school. I'm not sure how many I need. I had originally thought 77 squares, but that seems huge. No matter – I will lay them all out and if 49 is not enough, then I will figure out just how many more I need and make them.
They will get crocheted together with the lighter green yarn. That seems like a good project for watching TV. Come fall, I plan on cuddling up with my new blanket.
I'm just not going to think about weaving in all those ends.
