Granny Square Challenge - Week 5

Well we are almost at the end of our kickstarter 6 week challenge and a lot of us are slowing down.  Others are going great guns and we even have a couple of nearly completed blankets!

I am doing my best to complete the final reverse colourways on my existing bunch of squares and have 3 lots to go.  I have made a good start on the middles today during our crochet Class at Beautiful Things and hope to be done by next week

I think I am going to start joining my squares now to see what sized blanket I actually have.  After that I may add a few rounds of granny stripe to the whole thing and possible then some more squares but we will see.

I made a start on blocking some of my squares today, it's going to be a long process but worth it to get the nice flat shapes with straight edges to make joining easier

 Lets see how some of our other challengers are getting on:

We have blogs from
