As my project I am doing a Sunnyspread throw and trying to complete one square a day. Each square takes around 1/2 hour, so is very do-able and can be slotted in around my other day to day things.
I find myself grabbing my cotton and hook as I head out of the door in the morning to take the boys to school. I manage the first half while we wait, we are inevitably early (although this may be a conscious decision, as I know as soon as I arrive I can crochet!) and the second half and maybe a start of the next one, at the end of the school day. I had a smirky look from someone I knew yesterday, but I felt quite smug in the knowledge that I have at least one of my Christmas presents on the way to being done.
What else would I be doing with that time otherwise?
Anyway, enough wittering!
(There is one lurking in there which only has 11 'rays' not 12, but then nobody seemed to notice last week so I guess it is passable)
I haven't attempted any blocking, but probably will as time goes on and I start to panic about everything coming together on time.
I think the pattern suggests 84 squares, which was where I was heading, however, rather typically of me, I have just figured out that despite being organised and weighing one square to make sure I bought the right amount of cotton, I failed to appreciate that I will actually need more as the blanket has a border........oh. dear, so I may well end up making less squares yet.......I'll see where I get to!
This is a shot of the underneath, which I also really like, although I know most wouldn't have sewn it like I have with the ridge, but I like the geometric feel to it in one colour.
Anyway, the afternoon is fast disappearing and I will be back on the school run shortly, so better look lively.
