Back in the Autumn of 2013 I wrote a post about the Homely blanket and recommended it to some of you to give it a try.
I though you might like to see Elspeths progress:
Elspeth has been working hard on completing her squares Some of the designs she has loved and completed half a dozen or more of. Some she did not enjoy so just did a couple and some she didn't even bother with. this is the joy of the design you can really do as much or as Little as you like.
The time came for her to join them all together and this is where she has got stuck! If you complete just one of each square you can simply join them up as you go and then finish off the edges by filling in the gaps, but when you have a few of each square thats not so easy.
There was only one thing for it really...............a visit to BTHQ where we shoved all the tables out of the way, spread out on the floor and starting safety pinning the work together.
Then came the joining..............a task of actually sitting on the floor and hooking each square together. We found this tricky at times as there were gaps which simply didn't fill so we have had to do a spot of Join as You go to fill in areas with granny clusters.
Elspeth has now taken her creation back home to finish, but I suspect we might see her back on the floor of BTHQ before long!
I will keep you posted on her progress.
